Creamy Avocado Salad Dressing/Dip

This dressing is the BOMB! I’m trying to detox my diet and eat clean, including limiting dairy and starchy foods.  I’m eating a lot of salads and have been using various oils and vinegars as dressing.  Which is great but sometimes a girl wants a thick, creamy, luscious salad dressing.  I threw this together, first without the avocado – and the dressing was watery, thinner than I wanted, and just kinda blah.  I decided to add the avocado and VOILA! It is the holy grail of heart-healthy/low carb salad dressings.   Put it on anything or everything!  Eat it with a spoon! Use it as a dip!  Or hair conditioner (only 1/2 kidding, it would probably be a great hair conditioner). You may want to slather this all over and roll in it (but PLEASE don’t use it as a lube – just.  don’t go there.) If you’re not familiar with veganaise, I buy the Follow Your Heart brand, it’s fabulous and dairy free.

1/2 c vegenaise (or sub a decent mayo, I highly recommend Duke’s which is sugar free)

1/2 c almond milk

2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (optional)

1 tablespoon Wocestershire (organic, vegan, regular – whatever you wish)

1/2 – 1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 large avocado


Throw it all in a blender/food processer and blend until thick and creamy.  Do the happy dance, because your mouth is about to rejoice.
