Creamy Avocado Citrus Dressing

Creamy Avocado Citrus Dressing

This is a lovely, thick, flavorful dressing that doesn’t use much oil. The avocado thickens it while the citrus juices, cilantro, and jalapeno add plenty of flavor. This recipe was inspired by a recipe in the Raw Food, Real World book – with a few minor adjustments!


  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup white or yellow onion
  • 1/2 of a small jalapeno pepper, seeds removed
  • 1 generous handful of cilantro
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Put all ingredients except the olive oil in a high speed blender or food processor.
  2. Blend until thoroughly combined.
  3. With the machine still running, stream in the olive oil so that the mixture will emulsify.
  4. Enjoy!
