Hi there! Today I have a delicious and creamy dressing recipe for you guys. It may not be a looker but it’s sure packed with flavour and goes great with any salad combo! I used some delicious fresh basil from my plant (throwback to last year when I did Herb Month) and it adds so much!
This dressing takes five minutes to whip up, and has all of the taste of a balsamic dressing, but is much creamier and has that extra basil in there. It’s the consistency of a good ranch dressing. I like it because oftentimes I’ll make vinaigrettes, and it’s nice to have something more unctuous. Isn’t that a great word? When something is unctuous you know you want to eat it.
For lunch lately I’ve just been roasting a bunch of veggies (including sweet potatoes, of course) and tossing them with some lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and a sick dressing like this one. It just ties everything together and still tastes so light and fresh! Some other things you could slap this on would be sandwiches, wraps, and bowls. It’s so good! Here’s the recipe;))
Creamy Avocado and Balsamic Dressing
Total Time: 5 minutes
- 1/2 a ripe avocado
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 4 small leaves of fresh basil, chopped
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp water
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Mash the avocado very well in a small bowl. You want as few lumps as possible.
- Whisk in the rest of the ingredients, then serves in salads, wraps, bowls or sandwiches.
Hope you like this dressing! It’s great for summer;))
