Guacamole Dressing

I am such a guacamole addict. I can eat a bowlful by myself. (TMI?) The other day I served a huge scoop on top of a salad...delicious. Then a lightning bolt went off...what if I made a guacamole dressing for salad? Brilliant!

This easy recipe comes together in minutes. Perfect on a large mixed green salad, or add some grilled chicken, shrimp or beef  for a main dish. Works nicely as a dip for vegetables, poured over baked potatoes or drizzled over sandwich fillings. You will find many uses for this sauce. Enjoy!

Guacamole Dressing
(makes 2 cups)

2 large Hass avocados
1/2 white onion
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1 jalapeno, seeded and deveined
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
juice from 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup to 3/4 cup water
1/4 cup salsa
sea salt

green salad
corn tortilla chips

Cut the vegetables into large pieces and add to blender or food processor. Add olive oil, cider vinegar, lemon juice, 1/2 cup water, salsa and large pinch each salt and pepper. Process until creamy. Thin with additional 1/4 cup water if desired. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.

Lightly toss salad with dressing. Serve with tortilla chips and additional dressing for dipping
