A couple of weeks ago I postedÂ thatÂ I hadÂ madeÂ a yogurt-avocado dressingÂ for my salad and how deliciousÂ and simple it was.Â A friend of mine askedÂ me to share the recipe so here it is.Â I didn’t take any pictures, butÂ it’s so quick and easy, you don’t even need the pictures.Â This recipe is originally from a Mark Bittman cookbook; it’d be great as a dip for veggies, as a “sauce” or condiment for burgers or grilled chicken sandwiches, or as a dressing for salad.Â This recipe makes about a cup, cup and a half, of dressing but it doesn’t keep, so use it within a day.
1 cup Greek yogurt (I used 0% Fage yogurt)
1-2 garlic cloves
juice of 1 freshly squeezed lemon
1 ripe avocado
salt and pepper to taste
In a food processor, combine the yogurt, garlic clove, lemon juice, avocado, salt and freshly ground pepper and pulse to a creamy consistency.Â You can also do this by hand by mashing the avocado, then adding the rest of the ingredients and stirring.
Since I didn’t include any pictures this time, here’s a quick video I found on how to cut and pit an avocado.
