CREAMY AVOCADO SALAD DRESSING

Definitely a great recipe! I made this as a spread for a Turkey/Swiss sandwich tray. Got great reviews at a shower. I made it Saturday, and it tasted even better Sunday night. The flavors had more time to meld, I guess. I don’t know how long the dip will stay good, but it’s definitely something you can make the night before. It was more of a spread/dip consistency, as is. But I’m sure thinning it with buttermilk would make a fantastic dressing. It tasted so fresh, I might keep making this instead of buying bottles! I’m going to try the light version next time.


CREAMY AVOCADO SALAD DRESSING

Prep time:5 mins
Cook time:5 mins
Total time:10 mins

INGREDIENTS

1 Ripe Avocado
1 T. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp. Garlic Salt
½ Juice of Lemon

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Mash ripe avocado into paste like consistency.
  • Add Garlic Salt, Lemon Juice, and EVOO.
  • Whisk until blended.
  • Spoon over salad and enjoy!
  • Adjust the quantity of ingredients based on how many people you need to serve. I always start out with the smallest amount of oil and adjust from there.
  • (Add additional avocados to serve more people, and add more oil to make the dressing creamier.)


A few notes:
The Garlic Salt I use is a grinder from Trader Joe’s. It’s so full of flavor and also has onion and parsley in it. If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you this one works too!

The lemon helps to preserve this dressing in the refrigerator but it is best used within a few days. If the lemon is too much for you feel free to use less juice and more oil.
