I've been making our salad dressing more and more these days and so far every one has been a winner. However, I'm also finding that the more I make them, the less appealing the bottled kinds from the store are becoming. Which means I have to keep some made almost all the time but since they are oh, so good, it's worth it. This is one of our family's favorites and I love that the oil in this dressing is the heart-friendly kind of the avocado. It's so creamy that you can eat it like a dip or thin it out a little with some water or milk for salad.
1 ripe avocado, peeled and mashed
3/4 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
1 1/2 tablespoons lime or lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
2 tablespoon oil
Combine ingredients until smooth. Cover and chill for about 3 hours before serving.
This is really good with a green salad with tomatoes, red onion, black olives, and chopped cilantro.
