Creamy Avocado Salad Dressing Recipe

This 10-minutes-to-make and vegan Creamy Avocado Salad Dressing is an easy way to freshen up your salads and pasta dishes. You can even serve it as a dip with chips on the side. It is made with everyday ingredients like ripe avocados, cilantro, jalapeno peppers, garlic, and lemon or lime juice.

  • 3 tablespoons of lime or lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 ripe avocados peeled and cut into small pieces
  • 2 cloves of garlic peeled and minced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper seeded (optional)
  • ½ cup cilantro rinsed and roughly chopped
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • Almond milk - optional


  • Place lime or lemon juice, olive oil, avocados, garlic, jalapeno, cilantro, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and black pepper into the bowl of a food processor. Process 4-5 minutes or until creamy. Scrape down the bowl with a spatula a few times during the process.
  • If you want a more liquidy avocado dressing add in almond milk in one tablespoon increments until it reaches to the consistency you desire.
  • Taste for seasoning and add if necessary.
  • Place in a jar, place a piece of stretch film on top of the surface of the dressing to keep it from browning, and close it tightly with a lid. As long as it is kept in the fridge, this dressing will be good for 4-5 days.



  • Storage: As long as it is stored in an airtight container and stored in the fridge, this avocado dressing will keep fresh up to 4-5 days. 
  • If you do not have a food processor, you can use a blender or an immersion blender as well.
  • This recipe can easily be multiplied. Though I highly recommend stopping the machine regularly and scraping the sides during the process.
  • While I love a creamy avocado dressing, if you like it to have more of a chunky avocado texture, you can process less.
