Avocado Dressing

What can’t an avocado do? Cute little thing.

From Pico de Gallo to Avocado Cucumber Chutney to a delightful dressing. Mmmm.

I found the recipe for this dressing when I was at Central Market last week.  As usual, there were all kinds of testing stations at the store. The gal that whipped up this recipe was serving the dressing mixed in a cabbage slaw ~ to accompany a spicy pork tenderloin. It was delicious.

Avocado Vinaigrette

1 medium avocado * 1/4 c fresh lime juice * 1/4 c wine vinegar * 1 c roughly chopped cilantro * 1/2 t honey * salt & pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a food processor. (I used a blender. I also added a little vegetable oil to further emulsify because I picked out such a large avocado.)

My version turned out really thick (like ranch dressing) ~ I loved the consistency. And after tasting, I realized I could add jalapeno, garlic … lots of lovely would work with this dressing.

So, I really like those Iceberg Wedge salads but not so crazy about the Blue Cheese dressing plus crumbled Blue Cheese so I thought, why not experiment with this amazing the avocado dressing?

It was wonderful! Just a little crumbled Blue Cheese and a splattering of tomatoes. Easy to cut off a portion of lettuce and dip, dip, dip in the avocado dressing.


I’m sure there are about a million uses for this healthy avocado dressing. Like maybe a chopped salad with chicken ~ add the dressing and toss. Of course, the dressing with the cabbage slaw and pork was wonderful.

What would you create with this amazing avocado dressing?
