Why make your own dressing?
Homemade salad dressing is easier than you think! With just a few basic ingredients you can whip up something much tastier and healthier than anything that comes in a bottle. Trying to avoid high fructose corn syrup and polyunsaturated oils? Make this easy change to improve your family's health, and you might just end up enjoying salads more, too!
Basil-Lime Avocado Salad Dressing
A handful of fresh basil
2 garlic cloves
the juice of 2 limes
3/8 c. extra virgin olive oil
unrefined sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
filtered water to thin to desired consistency
Combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. You can use an immersion blender, regular blender, or food processor. My vote is the immersion blender: less dishes!
I was surprised to find that the leftovers lasted in the fridge for a couple days without turning brown! Must be the lime juice. This recipe made plenty for two main dish salads two nights in a row.
