Lemon Avocado Dressing

This salad dressing was inspired by one of my favorite salad dressings from Flower Child.  I love this thick and creamy dressing for a hearty salad.  This dressing is refreshing and creamy with the perfect hit of citrus from the fresh lemon juice.

I like to drizzle this dressing over some crisp Romaine with grilled chicken, bacon, and tomatoes for a somewhat deconstructed cobb salad.  Another favorite way to enjoy this dressing is on top of some crunchy kale with shredded cabbage and carrots, roasted slivered almonds, dried cherries, rotisserie chicken, and avocado slices.  And of course, this is such a refreshing way to enjoy veggies.  If going this route, I would add just a tablespoon or two of water (instead of half a cup) to keep the dressing extra thick and creamy for when you dunk your favorite veggies. Sliced bell peppers, cucumbers and carrots are all fabulous in this dip.


This dressing will stay fresh in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
