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.

Print Add Add To My Grocery List


2 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted and chopped
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
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.

I modified this recipe because I never have any milks on hand.
So I used some cashews and water one time and raw almond butter and water another time.
I really love it on everything too - my raw kale salad, my steamed veggie bowls, etc.
5 stars from me too but maybe I don't have permission to add stars - it just says no rating and I don't know why.

I made a salad with this dressing and even my non-ETL husband and teenage sons liked it. This one is a keeper.

Mildly tangy, creamy, delightful. Really easy to make too. I used balsamic instead of wine vinegar.

Thanks for the feedback I noticed this featured as a recipe for the day as well - so proud it's my one and only invented recipe.

So sorry. This was a total bust for me. I was thinking/hoping I misread the amount of white wine vinegar or that the other commenters would have some modification ideas (maybe I'll try balsamic vinegar). The white wine vinegar was overpowering. I added an extra avocado and 3X the amount of soy milk. No dice.

Hey Kellye99 sorry it wasn't too your taste did you use white vinegar or white wine only asking because in Australia we can things different names. I am not sure if you still liked the taste but I guess you could try a tbs of white wine vinegar if you are not keen on the strong taste otherwise it may not be for you. I am looking for more salad dressing ideas so if you have any I would love to know.

It was ok. I was looking for a little more zing though. It was just a little too mild for me. Maybe I'll try it with some balsamic next time.

I had to use balsamic vinegar instead of white wine. This is one of my new favorite dressings. Yummy

Had all the ingredients on hand. Gave it a try and it really is great. I added just a tad more unsweetened almond milk and white wine vinegar to make it drip a little more on the salad. Didn't hurt the flavor and it's just awesome!

I don't really like the taste of nutritional yeast but I thought the other ingredients would mask the flavor. It didn't ! I also found it to be extremely thick and had to adjust with extra almond milk. Still too thick so I ended up adding an additional cup of water to reach the pouring consistency I wanted. Perhaps my avocados were too large. Not my favorite dressing.

Very good but not amazing. I've had other avocado dressings that were better. Would make it again with less onion and less vinegar because those flavors overpowered the avocado

WOW!!! I made this exactly to recipe and was very pleasantly surprised. Very smooth and creamy. I used very ripe avocados which may explain the perfect consistency. Might try a flavored vinegar in the future for variety, but this would also be great as a dip.

I have kept it in the fridge for almost 2 weeks. It turns a tad brown on top so keep it air sealed. I put a couple of the avocado pits in the dip after I make it and that helps keep it fresher too.
I make this dip all of the time to use with cucumbers and peppers and it! I only use half the vinegar because it is very strong.
I have shared this recipe with all of my friends! :)

I have noticed that the serving sizes are NOT listed with not only this recipe, but with all of the recipes. How should the serving sizes for Dr. Furhman's recipes be determined?

This dressing is delicious, but even though I used four times the non dairy milk, it was thick and creamy, like a pudding. Dr Fuhrman uses this recipe in his Quick and Easy Cookbook, and calls it “Quick Avocado Dressing”, so the pudding texture caught me by surprise. Definitely delicious!
