Creamy Avocado Balsamic Dressing


Description

Avocado Balsamic Dressing // Take your balsamic vinaigrette to the next level by using avocado to replace some of the oil. The result is a rich, flavorful and creamy dressing you’ll want to drizzle on everything.


Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup good quality balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon brown mustard
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/41/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil, divided (1 Tablespoon will be used for sautéing garlic)
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 24 Tablespoons water, or more depending on the texture you prefer

Instructions

  1. Sauté 1 Tablespoon of olive oil with minced garlic until garlic is fragrant. Turn off heat and allow to cool. This step is optional, but it adds a depth of flavor and makes the garlic a little less pungent.
  2. Add sautéed garlic along with all the other ingredients except water into a high powered blender. Blend to combine. Parsley should be chopped well, but the dressing will be pretty thick at this point. Add in water to thin the dressing out a bit. Start with 2 Tablespoons and add more if needed. I found that 3-4 Tablespoons worked well for me.

Notes

Nutrition info will vary based on how much water you add to the dressing.
