Avocado and Herb Dressing

Avocado-Citrus-Salad
Makes about ¾ cup

The avocados are so delicious all year round and relatively inexpensive at Trader Joe’s and Costco. I keep them in the house as a regular staple item. We add them to salad, make fresh salsa and guacamole and now I have been experimenting with using them in salad dressings. I like this one because it’s creamy and zesty. Use whatever herbs you prefer. Full of anti-oxidants, it’s a great way to get a little healthier after Hanukah.

8 tablespoons chopped herbs (any combination of basil, parsley, mint, cilantro, chives, tarragon, or anything you like)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 avocado, pitted
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup olive oil

In a small bowl, mix herbs, garlic, avocado, lemon juice, vinegar, and salt. With an immersion blender, blend in olive oil until dressing is emulsified and creamy. Store in refrigerator until ready to use.

Use on mixed greens with tomatoes, cucumbers or any vegetables of your choice.
