Prep time: 10 mins
Total time: 10 mins
I adore yogourt-based dressings for summer as they pair so well with cucumber and new greens. This is my current darling and I make a fresh half-pint jar every week. The avocado works as a binder while lending a creaminess to the dressing.
  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 1/4 cup plain yogourt
  • 3 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  1. Combine in a blender ALL ingredients EXCEPT for the olive oil. Blend until smooth.
  2. Pour in the olive oil and blend one more time until it is incorporated.
  3. Transfer the dressing to a half-pint jar, top with a lid and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
