Creamy Avocado Dressing

I LOVE avocados. Seriously, I love them. And I thought I would love this dressing. But I didn’t. It tasted too much like guacamole to me, and guacamole needs chips, not lettuce! It was edible, but it just didn’t work for me.

Creamy Avocado Dressing
(A PureWow Original Recipe)

Makes 1 1/2 cups
Start to Finish: 20 minutes


2 ripe avocados, halved and pitted
1 garlic clove
Juice of 1 lemon
⅓ cup rice-wine vinegar
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper


1. Scoop the avocado flesh into the bowl of a food processor. Add the garlic clove and lemon juice and process until coarse.

2. Add the vinegar and process until the mixture begins to look smooth. Gradually add the olive oil and mix until totally smooth. The texture can be thinned by adding a few tablespoons of water, if desired.

3. Season the dressing to taste with salt and pepper, and transfer it to a storage container. The dressing will keep for up to three days in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
