SO HOW'D IT GO?

This was delicious.  I used lemon juice and added the zest of the lemon.  I also added about 1/2 cup of water to get it to blend smoothly in my blender.  A new favorite!

This was very refreshing. I am trying desperately to get my husband off bottled dressings, but to no avail. I hope he soon realizes that homemade is so much better than anything from a bottle.

I did use lemon but will use lime next time for sure.

A  lite and tasty mayo substitute. I used1 lime, 1 avocado some cayenne infused white vinegar  and some  celery salt,  which came out to fast so I added some stevia.  The saltiness  melanged  just right  with the lettuce,  vege farm ham,  mushroom  , and tahini  dressing  sandwich.

this is a great base recipe!  i used the following:

2 avocados
1 lemon
2 limes
1 mini cucumber
2 Tbsp ACV (approx)
and probably a few Tbsp of Agave

Everything else I left the same.  YUM!

This recipe was wonderful. I changed it up a little and only did one avocado. I added some old bay seasoning, dill, celery seed and replaced lime with lemon juice (it was all I had). I did use the cider vinegar and since I was using it as one would use mayo in a mac. salad, I didn't add water. It was light, fluffy and PERFECT for my pasta salad. What a great way to use an avocado!

I am glad someone else has thought of this idea with fresh avocados.

I make a similar dressing for my salads with about 2 oz. avocado, 1 oz. (2 T.) vinaigrette and 1-2 oz. water.  I puree the dressing with an immersion blender and use this on my salads.  This makes about 2/3 cup.

Sometimes I toss in 1 oz. of fresh cucumbers and cut back on the added water.  The dressing has even more body and creaminess without tasting like cucumbers.

And I sometimes vary the dressing with whatever I have premade in the refrigerator.  This is good with commercially prepared dressings to give the avocado dressing a different flavor.  I made a lemon one with a bottled dressing my mom brought home.  Sometimes I make poppy seed.
