Make Your Own Avocado Salad Dressing

Make Your Own Avocado Salad Dressing
September 26, 2016

You’re probably already using chunks or slices of creamy avocados as an ingredient in your salads. But have you tried making a dressing with avocados yet?

Making your own dressing with avocado is a great way to use items that you may already have on hand. Not only will your salads taste super delicious, they’ll add a nutritious layer, too. ¡Gracias, aguacate!

Homemade salad dressings made with avocado will still taste and feel creamy, thanks to their good fats like 1 gram polyunsaturated and 5 grams monounsaturated fats.

Taste alone is a great reason to make a dressing with avocado, but added nutrition is another. Avocados contain 3g of fiber per 1/3 medium avocado (50g) serving and they deliver nearly 20 vitamins and minerals.

Grab one of your Avocados from Mexico and whip up one of these three delicious dressings for your next salad.
