Creamy Avocado Dressing

Combining the freshly squeezed lemon juice with the avocado in this recipe serves two purposes. One is for the flavor; the other is to prevent the dressing from turning dark.

INGREDIENTS | YIELDS 1 cup

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • ⅓ cup soy milk
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • ½ teaspoon fresh dill
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground white pepper
  1. Halve the avocado and remove the pit; peel the avocado.

  2. Combine the avocado, soy milk, lemon juice, olive oil, mayonnaise, dill, salt, and pepper in a blender. Blend until smooth, scraping the sides with a rubber spatula.

  3. Pour dressing into a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

  4. Before serving, shake to blend. This dressing will keep for 5 days in the refrigerator, tightly covered.
