Avocado Dressing Recipe

This Avocado Dressing Transforms Salad Greens Into Something Spectacular

Many home cooks tend to rely on yogurt, tahini, and mayo to add creaminess to salad dressings, but consider this fresh alternative: avocado. Though it sounds strange, blended avocado adds a hefty body (and yet neutral flavour) to just about anything you throw in your blender — from salad dressing to ice "cream" to green smoothies. The citrus juices brighten up the dressing without the use of vinegar, and the sweet-zesty flavour transforms mundane greens into a bowl-licking salad to be served alongside any light and bright Spring and Summer dishes.

Notes

I love how nature gives us healthy fats that we can use to make creamy foods without the guilt. I could practically drink this dressing from the pitcher! Its beautiful bright green colour will liven up any salad.
