Making this dressing made me realise that I need to do way more salad dressings on the blog. This Creamy Vegan Avocado Dressing is one you should definitely put on your “MUST MAKE” list and then pour it on all the salads. As shown in the video above, it’s SO easy to make it’s almost not even a recipe, but it’s so worth it. Let’s to it, shall we?

The first time I made this dressing, while was absolutely delicious, it was way too thick. It was more of a dip, and while I loved the taste I knew I needed to re-do it. A few changes and it’s one of the best dressings I’ve ever tried.

One of my favourite things about this avocado dressing is the creaminess. Like seriously, you’d think there was greek yogurt in this!! Or that I hit a “make extra creamy” button that’s all thanks to the beautiful, creaminess of the avocado. Lots of healthy fats, lots of delicious flavours, and LOTS of creaminess. That’s definitely my new favourite word.

My other favourite thing about this? You can use it in a million ways. As a dip, as a mayonnaise replacement in sandwiches, burgers and on any salad your heart desires. You can also switch it up if you like: add another garlic cloves, cilantro instead of parsley, and probably even some more seasonings (cayenne could give it a delicious kick).

Whatever you do, TRUST ME, try this. It’s so filled with flavour and definitely something I think anyone will love. Also, please, don’t leave the lime out! It not only keeps it bright and green, but brings out an amazing flavour in it. So make it, pour it over, and eat all the salads.
