Asian Avocado Dressing

Sharing is caring!

I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m not a big fan of avocados. But, there is something about this Asian Avocado Dressing that changes things.

I’ve made avocados in a cheesecake and can make a mean guacamole for my husband and daughter to ravage, but I just can’t get down with those things.

OK, I can handle avocado in my sushi, but that’s about it. 2 out of the 5 people in this household love these buttery green entities.

While my sons aren’t as bad as I am, they could easily leave avocado off of their plates when given the chance.

That is until I made this dressing. It’s the avocado dressing that binds us nowadays.

A Use For Overripe Avocados

I tend to use very ripe, almost over-ripe, avocados for this since I hate waste.

I give it an Asian flair with rice wine vinegar and sometimes half a teaspoon of ground ginger.

With the use of a food processor and some sour cream, you get a yummy and easy-to-make dressing that’s used on a salad or as a dip for veggies and chips.

It does get thicker by the day, so feel free to use it instead of mayo on a sandwich.

Or do like I did: chop up some chicken and carrots, cook orzo, and toss with a few tablespoons of the dressing! Now that was a good impromptu lunch.

Asian Avocado Dressing

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe avocados, cubed
  • 1/3 cup sour cream (regular or light)
  • 1/3 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger (optional)

Instructions

Place all the ingredients in a food processor. Blend until all the cubes are gone and all the ingredients are incorporated. Place in a pretty bowl for dipping, or pour over a large delicious salad!

Tip: The avocado dressing does get thicker over time, so it can also be used as a dip. Try to store in a glass container if possible to avoid attracting “funky” fridge smells.

    That looks delicious! I never thought of using avocado in a dressing.

      Neither did I! But if you think about it, it’s nice and creamy and pairs well with lots of bold flavors to liven up a boring salad. It’s the perfect start to a great homemade dressing.

      I so wish I could love them as much as others do. It would give me an excuse to buy them more, and create more recipes!

      See? I’m finding more and more people that are with me on the avocado thing. I swear Randa,this recipe just might convert us. OK, maybe not, but it doesn’t taste too “avocado-like” if you know what I mean.

    This looks like the perfect dressing for summer! I love avocados and always have them around so I’m sure this would be awesome for my daily salads.

      Amiyrah said:

      Danielle, it really is! It’s nice and cool and isn’t very heavy, even with the sour cream in it. I love that it gets thicker over time, so it would be great to serve with veggies at a barbecue.
