Healthy Homemade Avocado Lemon Salad Dressing Recipe

One of my most favorite dressings is this Healthy Homemade Avocado Lemon Salad Dressing Recipe.
Healthy Homemade Avocado Lemon Salad Dressing Recipe, with Lemon cilantro garlic and honey, great on any salad perfect for spring and summer menu plans
We are finally having some beautiful weather here. When we have nice weather I eat a lot more salad.  I tend to eat the same salad combos but like to mix it up with different salad dressings.   This smooth and creamy avocado dressing is pretty amazing. I like it on green salad, pasta salad or even a corn and bean salad. Hope you enjoy it too.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Avocado
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 a clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (red wine vinegar works too)
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • salt/pepper to taste

Directions

Blend everything in a blender or food processor  until smooth and creamy. Add just a bit of water if you would like the dressing a little thinner. I do! Then adjust the salt.
This makes about 1/2 cup or so (give or take). Depends if you like it a little thicker or not. It should last 2-3 days in the fridge – the flavor changes a bit.  Of course you can double the recipe and adjust it to your taste if you tend to like it more or less with the acidity of the lemon/vinegar.
