Avocado Salad Dressing


I've been busy baking up all sorts of sweets for the first  Food Bloggers Bake Sale.  The bake sale is happening all over the country and I'm excited to be part of the Los Angeles event.  I've filled the last few days scooping and freezing cookie dough balls so they'll be ready for the oven Friday afternoon.  



I needed something healthy and refreshing for lunch today after days of making sweets, so I came up with this dressing using ingredients from my fridge.  It's quick and will compliment just about any kind of salad greens and vegetables (it would actually make a fabulous dip too!).  I had some grilled chicken and baby romaine on hand, ready for a quick, delightful lunch.

Please make sure you find the Bake Sale site nearest you, meet some food bloggers, and pick up some of their delicious baked goods.  You'll be glad you made a salad for dinner ;).  I hope to see you there!

Ooh, I'm frustrated I was in LA on Saturday and didn't know this was happening. I would have loved to come! I've been reading your blog for a while now without commenting, but I love your recipes, food, and philosophy.

I'm wondering how this dressing would taste as a dip. Obviously, it would be too thin as is. Would you recommend omitting the olive oil and adding a bit more yogurt?

Elizabeth: I wish you'd known too! It would have been fun to meet you! As for the dressing; I left it in the fridge and it firmed up quite a bit and made a fantastic dip (without changing any of the measurements). I figured out the "dip" keeps for 5 days and it doesn't even turn brown!
