I have a light & delicious lower-carb dinner recipe for you today. Scallops make any meal feel special and they take only a few minutes to sear!
This dish comes together even faster than a traditional recipe, because it uses a packaged slaw mix.
(makes 4 servings)
Make the dressing: In a blender, combine the avocado, yogurt, lemon juice, parsley, and a pinch of salt. Cover tightly and blend until smooth. If you want a thinner dressing, add a small amount of water, ½ tsp at a time.
Prepare the slaw: Place the slaw mix in a large salad bowl and pour the avocado mixture over it, tossing to coat.
Sear the scallops: Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the scallops in the pan and cook for about 1-2 minutes per side (until browned). Remove from the heat, and sprinkle with pepper and additional salt if desired.
Place on a serving plate with the slaw. Enjoy!
