MCLV Mange: Creamy Avocado Dressing

A great salad dressing makes you want to eat salad. It’s raison d’etre is to get you聽excited for a giant bowl of fresh veggies and toppings.

I for one tend to go through phases with dressings. I’ll love one to death for a few weeks, or even months, then move on. But,聽to my surprise,聽I’ve been making variations of this creamy avocado dressing all Summer.

Another great thing about it is that you can adjust it to your desired consistency and use it as either a sauce or a dressing. I’ve served it on salad, roasted veggies, and even drizzled over chicken breasts for our last dinner party.

It improves them all!

Avocado Salad Dressing Vegan Vegetarian Gluten-Free Paleo San Francisco Bay Area Fashion Food Fitness Lifestyle Blogger Recipe

{Vegan // Vegetarian // Gluten-Free // Paleo-Friendly}

Creamy Avocado Dressing

Salad Ingredients:

  • 1 Avocado
  • Juice of 1 Small Lemon or Lime
  • 1 Clove of garlic
  • 1 Shallot or 1/2 Purple Onion
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Tsp Sea Salt
  • Water as needed

Directions:

  • Put ingredients to a food processor, magic bullet, or blender
  • Add water as needed to achieve your desired consistency

Note: I made this without olive oil once {accidentally} and it was just as tasty. If you’re trying to lower your fat intake you can leave it out or add less than that suggested two tablespoons.
