Creamy Avocado Dressing
This rich and creamy dressing contains just five ingredients and comes together in minutes. It also works well as a dip. The healthy fat in the avocados helps you to absorb more of the nutrients from the vegetables in your salad. Avocados are also a good source of fiber, folate, vitamin K, and vitamin C.
2 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted and chopped
1/4 cup unsweetened soy, hemp or almond milk
2-3 small shallots, according to taste
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
Blend all ingredients in a high-powered blender until smooth and creamy.
You can modify amounts of shallot and non-dairy milk to adjust taste and consistency.
Note: Unlike most fruits, avocados start to ripen only after they are picked. Unripe, firm and green fruit can take four to five days to ripen. A ripe avocado yields to gentle pressure but is still firm. If your avocado is ripe before you are ready to eat it, it can be refrigerated to slow down the ripening process.
