This Lemon Avocado Salad Dressing is light and flavorful and an easy way to add some healthy fats to your salad.
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 checked 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!
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.
Lemon Avocado Salad Dressing
A easy to make, light dressing that's full of flavor!
- 1/3 c mashed avocado (1 medium)
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice (juice from one lemon)
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp honey
- 2-3 Tbsp water (to reach desired consistency)
- Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and stir vigorously until well-combined.
- Makes about 1/2 a cup of dressing.
I enjoyed mine on a salad topped with a salmon cake!
