This is so simple I hardly call it a recipe. Yet it is one of my Summer staples when I am making tasty, healthy ,quick Summer salads. Avocados are such a perfect fruit that I hate to do much to disguise their creamy, nutty flavor and this dressing stays true to that premise. I usually use Hass avocados ,the dark pebbly looking ones that have the best flavor(in my opinion). —dymnyno

In This Recipe
  1. Peel one very ripe avocado and mash it , using hands, fork or whatever to make a avocado paste.
  2. Squeeze one whole lemon into the avocado paste and blend it into the paste until smooth.
  3. Drizzle about two tablespoons of fresh fruity olive oil into the paste and blend the ingredients into a dressing. (be sure to use the freshest olive oil that you can find,ie, domestic). Grind a little fresh black pepper to taste.
  4. I use this as a dressing on salads that may include sliced avocados, tomatoes, red onions or scallions, cucumbers, and even cooked shrimp.
