Zingy Avocado Dressing

Avocados are one of my favorite foods (up there with kale). Super versatile, good on its own, or added to almost any dish for smooth creamy fatty yumminess. When they stopped carrying my favorite avocado dressing at the grocery, I decided it was time to make my own creation.

Since I was making roasted vegetables, I decided to make a thicker dressing that I could put on my veggies, as well as my salads. The main flavor profile: avocado and lime, with a touch of garlic and sweet honey lingering in the background. I also added in some cumin, since I was using it on my roasted vegetables, I thought it would compliment it nicely. I used rice vinegar for a nice tang element, then extra virgin olive oil and water to thin out the consistency. And of course, salt, to enhance the flavor of everything.

I simple tossed all of the ingredients into the food processor and blended away!

After tasting, I decided I wanted it to be slightly creamy, so I added in some sour cream.

And wah-lah! Dressing is done. Pour it in an air tight container and keep in the refrigerator for future use.
