Tomato Avocado Basil Dressing

Tomato Avocado Basil Dressing

I make it a point to eat a lot of leafy greens every day, so it’s great when my salad dressing promotes good health as well. Avocados are a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids and they contain 3 times the potassium found in bananas. Try this super easy and delicious oil-free salad dressing on your favorite greens today!

1 vine-ripened tomato, cut into quarters
1/2 ripe avocado
1/4 cup fresh basil
Juice of 2 lemons
Sea salt to taste

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy; adjust salt to taste.

Toss with dark leafy greens for a healthy, oil-free, and delicious salad!

  1. So excited to try this – I’ve been looking for a new and healthier salad dressing to get excited about, as I’m trying to eat a big ol’ salad every day for lunch this summer. Thanks!

  2. [...] For a nutrient-packed meal, try a spinach salad with fresh veggies and Tomato Avocado & Basil Dressing [...]

  3. Sounds great! I was going to mak it for my salad for lunch tomorrow. How long will it last? Can I make it tonight then put the leftovers in the fridge or is it better to make it right befor you eat it?

    • We keep it in the fridge for about a week (if it lasts that long!) I actually think it tastes better the next day; it gives the flavors a chance to come together.

  4. I love your website! It has such great recipes and resources. I have all of the ingredients for this dressing–looking forward to trying it!
    btw… I nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award! http://epicureanvegan.com/2012/06/26/one-lovely-blog-award/
