Avocado and Radish Cress Sandwich with Balsamic MCT Oil Dressing

Have you been getting creative this #Veganuary? We've been spicing up our lunch dates with different recipes including this yummy lunch favourite- a new and improved take on avocado toast! Avo' blast making this delicious Veganuary Sandwich with Avocado, Radish Cress and Balsamic MCT dressing made with NKD Living MCT Oil! 

“MCT” stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides which are fatty acids found abundantly in coconut oil and palm kernel oil (ours is strictly NO palm oil and ALWAYS 100% from coconuts). MCTs are highly water soluble, so they can be absorbed through the wall of the small intestine where they are then transported to the liver. They skip the lymphatic system, which is where most fatty acids are processed. Our bodies break down and utilise MCTs almost immediately and so they are not stored like other fats!

Ingredients:

Your go-to Bread
1 Avocado
1 bunch of Radish Cress/ Watercress

For the Dressing:
(makes a batch, keep & save for tomorrow!)
1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar

2 tbsp Lemon Juice
1 tsp Dry Mustard Powder
1-2 tsp NKD Powdered Erythritol (Sweeten to taste)
1-2 tsp Salt (Season to taste)
