This is far lighter than it seems because it is made with yogurt rather than mayo & you can control the amount of olive oil yourself.  The oil is used mainly as a thinner & you could probably even use water instead – if the fat from the oil concerns you.  Beyond that – all you do is stick the ingredients in a food processor or blender & whip them up!   PS – there is no onion in this dressing but the magenta-red looked so pretty – I included that onion in the pictures.

Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dressing with Lime & Dill

INGREDIENTS

1 large avocado -peeled cut into chunks

1/2 cucumber – cut into chunks

6 ounces Greek yogurt

juice of 1-2 limes – depending on how juicy the limes are

1-2 tsp fresh dill

1-2 tsp fresh cilantro (or parsley)

3 garlic cloves

1/3 cup olive oil (more or less – depending on how thin you like your dressings)

S&P to taste

1 jalapeno (optional) – if you like kick

DIRECTIONS

Blend everything except the olive oil in a food processor until smooth.  Drizzle oil in until it reaches the consistency you prefer.  If you want it thinner than 1/3 cup oil makes it – maybe consider adding a bit of water to thin it.  Add S&P to taste.  Adjust lime & dill & cilantro to suit your tastes.
