Lately I have been really into using cardamom. It’s such a deliciously aromatic spice. So, I have been doing a lot of experimenting with it. I initially created this citrus avocado cardamom dressing recipe for a kelp noodle dish I was making, and I wanted a Thai-ish feel to it. But, it really can be so versatile, so you can use it as a salad dressing or as a sauce for lettuce wraps. The avocado base gives it a really nice creamy texture perfect for sauce or dressing.
