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
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
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.
