Avocado Dill Dressing Recipe

Avocados are abundant in healthy fatty acids (mostly monounsaturated), fiber, potassium, and folate. Avocados are one of nature's best sources of lutein, a natural antioxidant that is needed for healthy eyes and skin.

This is an amazing dressing for a fresh salad, steamed vegetables, on whole grains, or to use as a veggie dip for when you have company over. It can also be a healthy addition to your child's lunch box for school - perfect for dipping their carrots into!

You will need:

1 large ripe avocado
1 cucumber, peeled and cut into chunks
2 tablespoons of cold pressed, extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
2 teaspoons of dried dill
Sea salt, to taste


Scoop the avocado into a strong blender along with your chunks of peeled cucumber, olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice, dried dill (use fresh if you have it), and sea salt to taste.


Blend all ingredients until smooth.


Keeps well in an airtight bottle or container for a few days.
