Dairy-free Creamy Avocado Dressing

Dairy-free Creamy Avocado Dressing

After being dairy-free for a while, you start to miss the creaminess of certain things, like salad dressings. Here I have developed a simple creamy avocado dressing that goes great with salads as well as a dip for veggies or taquitos.  We have enjoyed it so much.  I have plans to change the recipe up a bit by experimenting with different seasonings so I will post those in the future.  In the meantime, get the hang of making this one. It won’t disappoint.

Directions

Combine all the ingredients in a food processor, and blend until smooth.

If the dressing is not your desired consistency, add water, just a tsp at a time.

While the bagels are toasting, combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl and adjust seasonings to taste. Then spread onto toasted bagels and serve. Serves 2.
