Who doesn’t like a good creamy dressing?
This one will certainly hit the spot. Can be used as a substitute for mayonnaise, especially if eggs are a problem. It also contains wonderful ‘good’ fats, with the use of avocado and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Contrary to previous popular belief, not all fats are the same, nor are they all classified as bad. Fat is a major source of energy and helps your body absorb nutrients from foods.
Avocados contain naturally good fats; in fact over 75% of the fat in avocados is good fat with 3g coming from monounsaturated fat (MUFA) and 0.5g from polyunsaturated fat per 1-oz serving.
Extra virgin olive oil is fairly nutritious.;
It contains modest amounts of Vitamins E and K and plenty of beneficial fatty acids.
This is the nutrient content of 100 grams of olive oil (1):
- Saturated Fat: 13.8%.
- Monounsaturated Fat: 73% (most of it the 18 carbon long oleic acid ).
- Omega-6: 9.7%.
- Omega-3: 0.76%.
- Vitamin E: 72% of the RDA.
- Vitamin K: 75% of the RDA.

You can use this dressing on anything. I tossed it through a chicken salad, or you could use on a potato salad, a side condiment with fish, chicken, on top of a baked potato or anything really. Even substitute it for a runnier guacamole if you like?
It has lots of herbs for extra flavour and nutritional benefits, but you can get creative with this and use as much or what ever herbs you like.
It is, as like most of recipes, very Simple, Quick, Delish, Nutrish!
