Avocado Cilantro Dressing Print Email

1 large ripe avocado
3/4 bunch cilantro (about 1 cup loosely packed)
juice of 1 lime
juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, grated or minced
1-2 TBS red wine vinegar
up to a 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar

Scoop out flesh of avocado and place in blender or food processor.

Add cilantro, citrus juices, garlic, 1 Tbsp of red wine vinegar and olive oil.

Blend on low, adding remaining red wine vinegar and white balsamic vinegar to taste as you go, until emulsified. You may want to add more olive oil and vinegar/citrus juices to thin out. This dressing is quite thick, but if you add too much liquid, it does take away from the delicate flavour of the avocado.

** Just a note that this dressing is FANTASTIC on pasta salad too.
