Creamy Avocado Salad Dressing -Oil Free

avocado dressing


Avocados contain a significant amount of fat- healthy good fat- but still fat. When I decided to make this tasty creamy avocado salad dressing, I decided not add any additional oil.

 Forks Over Knives, Dr. Fuhrman, and other plant based doctors say getting your fat from food, not oil is a healthier choice. They recommend getting your fat from avocados, nuts, seeds, and olives.

This delicious creamy avocado vegan salad dressing adds lots flavor and depth to whatever salad you are eating. .  I love it over any kind of greens.

The  salad I ate today was composed of organic romaine lettuce, tomato, parsley, kale, cucumber, and red cabbage.

This salad dressing was made from red onion, avocado, baby spinach leaves, fresh lime juice, a little water and freshly cracked pepper all blended in a minute in my Nutri Bullet until smooth and creamy.

What a powerhouse of vegetables and it was absolutely delicious! Next time I think I'll add some raw cashews to my salad or maybe the dressing!

    1. It's a family favorite- but you can add some olive oil to it for even a richer taste
