Enjoy this ultra-creamy, keto-friendly salad dressing for all your salad needs. The herbaceous notes of the parsley infused with the good fats from the avocado is a healthy alternative to the store-bought varieties.
We are massive advocates of homemade salad dressings wherever possible. Why buy the supermarket bottles when you know it’s full of processed ingredients and is high in refined sugar.
It’s incredible the number of times I have seen half-used bottles of salad dressings in fridges that eventually get thrown away anyway. Such a waste.
Creating your own salad dressing is not only a healthier choice, but you are in control of exactly what goes in it. Also, there is less wastage as you would only make what you need.
This Avocado Herb Dressing is an excellent example of a homemade dressing that is so delicious yet easy to make. You’re just adding everything into a food processor, giving it a good blitz and you’re done.
For those of you living a keto lifestyle, this dressing is perfect for you.
Filled with creamy goodness, this dressing is great as a base for your salad or stirred through your salad ingredients.
Avocado Herb Dressing Ingredients
Avocado: Select avocado that is on the riper side without bruising. It needs to be soft so that you can create beautiful puree like dressing that is spreadable. You don’t want hard lumps of unripe avocado.
Olive Oil: As always, select an olive oil of your liking to give the dressing an added velvety finish.
Parsley: For this recipe, we use the flat leaf kind. The curly parsley is too coarse for what we need. We only need the leaves. Discard the stem.
Water: To dilute the consistency of the recipe as otherwise, it is too thick.
Salt: Needs some seasoning to finish off the flavours.
Avocado Herb Dressing Method
To create this luscious creamy salad dressing, start with the avocado. Cut it in half, discard the pit and peel the skin.
Roughly chop the flat leaf parsley leaves.
Using a food processor, blitz the avocado, parsley, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, water and salt.
When it becomes smooth in consistency, set it aside, ready for assembly.
