Lemon Avocado Salad Dressing

Hi Friends!

lemon avocado dressing Lemon Avocado Salad Dressing

I know it’s Bean Bytes day but I just had to pop in again and share a quick recipe with you guys in honor of a very special lady! Thanks to some wonderful blogger organizers, we’re having a little virtual baby shower for Liz at The Lemon Bowl.  If you haven’t check out her blog, go do so immediately. She posts some amazing recipes!

Today we’re celebrating Liz by putting together a little recipe roundup…and LEMON is the star ingredient!

lizs baby shower Lemon Avocado Salad Dressing

I opted to make a salad dressing. You guys know I LOVE avocado on my salad. Usually I just chop it up and put it on top…but sometimes it’s nice to spread the wealth a little bit and give every piece of lettuce a little avocado flavor! Since lemon and avocado naturally go together, it didn’t take long to come up with this recipe.

  21. Love avocado on salads! I’ve never made a salad dressing with avocado intentionally, but its always the best when a fried egg yolk and avocado happen to mix together on top of a salad :) I’ll have to try this recipe on purpose next time!

  27. I absolutely love the option of using avocado IN the dressing instead of on the salad! Sometimes the texture of it throws me off, so this is such a fabulous option to get the beautiful avocado flavor without the chunks! :)

  28. Nice! I’m sure Liz would love this. Too bad we couldn’t have had this shower in real life! :)

    Deborah recently posted..The Lemon Bowl {The Blogger Ten}

  30. yum!

    thank you for the wonderful idea. there are so many variations to the basic recipe.

    thank you!!

  31. Does the color last or does it turn brown? Also, how long would this keep in the refrigerator in a glass jar? Thanks!

    • I’d say it would probably keep for about a week. It shouldn’t turn brown for several days because of the acid in the lemon. Try to keep it in a jar without a lot of extra space for air at the top.
