Avocado-Cucumber Dressing with Dill

Avocado-Cucumber Dressing with Dill

Makes 1/2 cup dressing

30 minutes or fewer

Avocado and cucumber play off each other when blended in a dressing that’s crisply flavored yet rich in texture. Try with arugula, finely chopped kale, and green onions for a green-on-green summer starter.
  • ½ large ripe Hass avocado, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped peeled and seeded cucumber
  • 1 Tbs. minced fresh dill
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. pure maple syrup

Place all ingredients in mini food processor or chopper. Add 1/4 cup water, and blend until very smooth. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

Cilantro might work as an alternative to dill - the combo is seen together a lot in Southwestern/ "Tex-Mex" cooking.

It would be really great to add a pin it button on your recipes, it would make it easier to save and share them.

How long will this last in the fridge?

I think I'm going to add garlic like another comment, to have a little more flavor, but then depending on what kind of salad you are having jalapeno might a good addition too, or some other spice.

I just made this green-on-green salad dressing and it has no flavor. I added salt & pepper 3 times and still couldn't enhance the flavor.

Awesome, Thank-you!

I've been using coconut sugar and unpasteurized honey to replace all sweeteners---they're great, and the coconut sugar is not as sweet as regular sugar. this dressing sounds fantastic--can't wait to try it!

I just made a dressing almost identical to the for the detox I'm on! No sweeteners for me right now, but I added garlic to mine and it's an amazing dressing. It does have a slight bitterness though, which it bet the maple syrup will help modify. I look forward to trying this recipe with the little sweetness added to it when I'm done. I'd never add sugar. Never. Honey, maybe....

Not so sure about the maple syrup as I am not a maple syrup fan... Does it need to be sweet? could i use sugar, regular sugar that is...
