This homemade Avocado Salad Dressing is perfect for dipping veggies in or drizzling over your fresh salads. It is so easy to make from ingredients you have in your fridge and pantry.
After baking a ton of cheesecake desserts for a cookbook over the past few months, I am totally over baking! I can’t even believe I am saying that out loud! I have been baking all the things since I was 5 years old, and now I’m in burnout mode. Not cool!
Ok, maybe not completely over it since I wanted to bake cookies last night. But I had this overwhelming desire to make and eat salad yesterday. I do love this Apple Salad, but that wasn’t calling my name this week this time!
Since salad urges don’t happen very often to me, I had to run to the store and buy salad ingredients immediately. Do not get changed, do not put on makeup, do not pass go…just get in the car and go!
In my hurry to get in and out of the grocery store I forgot to buy more salad dressing. We do have some ranch in the fridge, and that would have worked, I guess.
But I really wanted an avocado salad dressing, since I was putting avocados on my salad. Curse these crazy salad urges!
