Creamy avocado vinaigrette

    1 hour 10 min

    This salad dressing uses avocado oil and fresh avocado. It is now one of my favourites but it came about by accident when I just threw together a few ingredients that I thought would work.

    1. Pour avocado oil, olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice and sesame oil into a blender. Cover and blend until smooth and emulsified, about 2 minutes. Add avocado; blend well to combine, about 2 minutes. Add garlic and cumin; blend until vinaigrette flavours are combined, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.
    2. Transfer vinaigrette to a container; chill in the fridge for 1 hour. Shake or whisk well with a fork before using.

    This was delicious! It is very creamy - the consistency of mayonnaise. I had to use lime and rice wine vinegar but the sesame oil gave it a deeper flavor. I had it on a baked potato and look forward to using it in place of mayonnaise in various applications.  -  29 Aug 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was delicious . I'd definitely make it again but would increase the lemon juice. It was very thick.i also added fresh cilantro.  -  26 Jun 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    As good as it sounds. Cool and creamy and a nice smooth flavour. I only used one clove of garlic though. I also added some cayenne pepper powder. It is quite thick. If you want a runnier dressing, I suggest mixing up 50% more of the liquid ingredients and adding it in little-by-little until you get the consistency desired. It all depends on the size of your avocado I think. Definitely a keeper for salads or as a dip.  -  14 Nov 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
