Creamy Avocado Citrus Dressing

This is a lovely, thick, flavorful dressing that doesn't use much oil. The avocado thickens it while the citrus juices, cilantro, and jalapeno add plenty of flavor. This recipe was inspired by a recipe in the Raw Food, Real World book - with a few minor adjustments!


  • 1 medium avocado

  • 1 cup fresh orange juice

  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice

  • 1/4 cup white or yellow onion

  • 1/2 of a small jalapeno pepper, seeds removed

  • 1 generous handful of cilantro

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Put all ingredients except the olive oil in a high speed blender or food processor.

  2. Blend until thoroughly combined.

  3. With the machine still running, stream in the olive oil so that the mixture will emulsify.

  4. Enjoy!
