Spicy Avocado Dill Dressing

If I could eat avocado every day, for every meal, I would. I’m that obsessed with it. But those darn things are so expensive that I wanted to find a way to make one of them last even longer – they usually don’t last more than 5 minutes around me. I’ve been getting bored with my salad dressings lately, so I figured what better way to make my avocados last longer than to make them into a dressing?

Creamy Avocado Dressing- your taste buds & belly will thank you.

Spicy Avocado Dill Dressing- I make this avocado dressing whenever I can! You need to try this.

I wanted to create a spin-off of my favorite dill veggie dip, so I added in fresh dill as an ingredient. And when I taste tested the final creation, I realized that what it was missing was a bit of pizzazz. That pizzazz comes in the form of chili powder, which adds the perfect amount of spice (not to mention you can make it more or less spicy depending on how much you use).

The beauty of this dressing is that it only uses one avocado for 8 servings of dressing. That’s 8 times the amount of servings I usually get out of one avocado! The result is an unbelievably incredible marriage of flavors – the creamy avocado mixed with the unique flavor of dill, and the kick of the chili powder that you recognize a split second later. It was so good that I caught myself eating some with a spoon directly out of the blender.

What’s even better is that this dressing is packed with nutrients. The avocado provides healthy fats, protein, and fiber, while the dill weed is a great source of antioxidants. Plus, I’ve found myself eating even more salads lately as an excuse to use this up! It’s definitely a new staple of my diet.

  1. I tried this tonight with a few substitutes since I am doing Whole30 and I can’t have honey or almond milk… instead I used a clementine juice for the honey (it’s the only thing I had!) and coconut milk for almond milk. It tastes pretty yummy! But mine is much darker than yours in the picture. I wonder if I just had a darker avocado. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Was delicious, used lemon juice instead of lime and coconut milk instead of almond, definitely keeping this recipe!
