Caesar Avocado Dressing

Caesar Avocado Dressing Final You guys, did you know you can buy gazillions of avocados at costco for like four bucks? Needless to say I’m going a little avocado crazy and throwing these little green goblins into EVERYTHING left right and center. Today, I share with you my new favorite avocado recipe. Basically Caesar salad dressing on steroids. {Also known as the bomb-diggity.}

This stuff is the easiest thing in the world to make and takes a plain jane salad into holy-mother-of-awesomeness-this-is-incredible territory.

Yup. It’s that good.

Try it out this weekend :) Here’s how you do it:

{PS- Don’t forget to enter to win two Cast Iron pans from Teflon HERE and like my photo found HERE!}

Caesar Avocado Dressing 1 Start out with some basic ingredients. I always have these on hand….magically….

Caesar Avocado Dressing 2 Anyways, crack open that avocado

Caesar Avocado Dressing 3 and scoop it into your mini food chopper along with the mayo.

Caesar Avocado Dressing 4 Squeeze in the lemon,

Caesar Avocado Dressing 5 grate in the garlic,

Caesar Avocado Dressing 6 and add in salt and pepper to taste.

Caesar Avocado Dressing 7 Blend the whole thing up and if desired, add in a few glugs of olive oil {or even water} to get the dressing to the consistency you like.

Caesar Avocado Dressing 8 Caesar dressing is pretty thick stuff, so I kept mine thick.

Caesar Avocado Dressing Final 2 Gather the ingredients for a casesar salad and knock yourself out! I LOVE cracked black pepper on mine, so I went a little crazy with that. But, make this how you like and make sure you don’t skip the bacon! I love bacon…..

Here’s the printable:

Enjoy your weekend :)

  10. Fantastic!

    Just love these “little green goblins” …. haha. Too cute. Appropriate tho.

    We couldn’t live without avocados in our fam. Noway.

    Will definitely make this dressing tomorrow!

    Gotta skip the piggie. Mostly veggies here. A bit of organic chicken and fish from time to time.

  11. This looks amazing. I want to make it to use on my lunch salads this week. Does it keep well in the fridge or will it oxidize like avocados tend to? I am guessing the lemon will help, but just wanted to check to see how far ahead of time I can make it without it turning an unpleasant brown.

  12. Just out of curiosity… how long will this last in the refrigerator? I have the perfect avocado and would love to make it up but know that we won’t eat it all in a day or two…. my family doesn’t really care for avocado but we are working on it. Thanks! I can hardly wait to try this.

    How does this store in the fridge with the avocado in it? Is this a dressing that can be made ahead of time?

  17. What a fantastic take on Caesar dressing, Lauren! This is such a great way to keep salad interesting. I’d love for you to share this recipe (and your Margarita Guacamole…and your Southwestern Salad…and…well, I could go on and on) in the avocado link-up/giveaway that I’m hosting with Kristen of Dine & Dish right now. http://bit.ly/NKF4rk

  19. I just made this and it is beautifully green and delicious. A whole lemon was too much for me tho. That was a lot of juice! I’d do half a lemon next time and I added some parmesan cheese too. That was a REALLY good decision :)

  20. I made this for the first time last night – didn’t have any fresh lemons but I had fresh limes so I used lime juice instead and it was to die for! I also make my own mayo and used that instead of store bought. I refuse to use store bought salad dressings and always make my own but hadn’t found a creamy dressing I liked – not any more! This will be a staple in my kitchen!

  22. I just made this an put in the fridge to chill for my dinner salad. It is divine. The only thing I did differently is use cracked lemon pepper instead of regular cracked pepper. You use what you have on hand, right? Anyways, thanks for the recipe.
