3 Delicious Avocado Salad Dressings

When seasons are about to change I am usually adding more avocados to my daily raw meals. Avocados are rich in immune system supporting zinc. This is something to consider well ahead before the cold season.

There are many ways to eat avocado. One of the easiest is to slice it up a serve it on a bed of crispy lettuce leaves. If you have more time at your hands you can turn nicely ripe avocados into delicious salad dressings. I hope you get inspired.

~ Creamy Lemon Pepper Avocado Dressing ~

  • 1 avocado
  • juice of 1 small lemon
  • zest of 1 small lemon
  • 2 Tbsp virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp freshly grind black, white and pink pepper
  • pinch Celtic sea salt to taste

  • To make the dressing place flesh of ripe avocado in a food processor. Add lemon zest, olive oil, and lemon juice. Process until smooth.
  • Add salt and freshly grind pepper. Blend again. You may need to add more lemon juice if your dressing turns out too thick. If you think your dressing is too acidic, add 1 Tbsp of purified water and whiz again.

~Spicy Orange Avocado Dressing –

  • 1 avocado
  • juice of 1 navel orange
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • 1 small green chili pepper, seeded and chopped (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp Celtic sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • In a food processor blend avocado, orange juice, lime juice and olive oil. Blend until well combined.
  • Add salt and pepper. Blend again. Adjust the taste to your personal liking.
  • Add chopped spring onion and green chili. Mix well. 

~ Avocado Garlic Cilantro Dressing ~

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 2 Tbsp virgin olive oil
  • pinch Celtic sea salt
  • freshly grind black pepper to taste.

  • Whiz all the ingredients in a blender until well combined.
  • Add more salt or pepper if needed. 

Use this simple, but delicious dressings on salads or as dips. To make the dressing a bit thicker use two avocados in each recipe. Enjoy in good company!
