Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 organic garlic cloves chopped
  • 1/2 juice of half of an organic lemon
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp minced red onion
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 2-3 tsp water optional

Instructions

  1. In a food processor or blender add all the ingredients except the water and pulse or blend until nice and smooth.

Recipe Notes

If the dressing appears to thick add the 2-3 tsp water or add oil and blend this should loosen the dressing.  

You can substitute the avocado oil with olive oil, if you are going to use olive oil make sure to use a light olive oil, I find the extra virgin olive oil is too heavy for this dressing.

*use organic ingredients when possible.
