Avocado Dressing

Avocado Dressing

Avocado lovers, meet your new favorite salad dressing: Avocado Dressing.

Avocados are my guilty pleasure. I could eat them every single day.

When I make a salad, I want there to be a little piece of avocado in every bite. It’s so hard to add just ¼ avocado to my bowl — that’s the recommended serving size and the equivalent of 1 blue Portion Fix Container.

The solution? Avocado Dressing!

This creamy dressing coats every bite of salad with the flavor of rich avocado. That’s because for this salad dressing you blend a whole avocado with garlic, onion, lemon juice, and parsley to make a luxuriously silky base.

A little bit of 2% Greek yogurt gives this Avocado Dressing recipe a consistency similar to ranch or Thousand Island dressing — but with healthier fat and a boost of protein.

It’s a good way not to ruin a healthy salad with an unhealthy dressing!

But don’t be afraid to think outside the salad bowl! This avocado dressing recipe is delicious on sandwiches and wraps and drizzled over steamed vegetables, and it ties together all of the ingredients in a grain bowl.

Want to turn up the heat a little bit? Swap out the parsley for cilantro and add half of a fresh jalapeño with the seeds removed. Drizzle it on this Black Bean Salad or use it to add the finishing touch to Healthy Fish Tacos.
