Avocado Basil Dressing

I love avocados. Or rather as we say in our household, ava-ca-doo.

I remember hating avocados when I was a kid. It was slimy, tasted like nothing, and was mushy. Now, I can’t live without them. We have at least 1 sitting around every week and today, I figured I would try to make a dressing using it.


I tried looking up recipes to be inspired to make up my own but alas, I didn’t like any of them. This is just a super simple concoction I made up…which I’m sure many others have a similar, if not the same, recipe. But all I care is that it’ll go great with our steak salads tonight!


Prep time: 5 minutes


1 ripe avocado, pitted and peeled
1/4 sweet onion
2 garlic cloves
juice of 1 lime
5-6 large basil leaves
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt

1. Place all ingredients in a high power blender and blend away!

2. Adjust to your liking with the lime and vinegar. I prefer very lime-y and vinegar-y dressings.
