Light Avocado Greek Yogurt Salad Dressing

Give me all the avocado Greek yogurt salad dressing.

It’s deliciously creamy but light and summery in the best way. This is my current favorite salad dressing for its beautiful green hue, almost as much as its flavor and consistency. 

The Avocado Greek Yogurt is super easy to throw together, and I’ve been using it to dress just about every salad I eat. Which, in the summer, is a lot of salads. 

If you’re not feeling a salad, I bet you could make it a little thicker and use it as a spread on a sandwich or wrap. Or as a sauce for tacos. Who’s never not feeling a taco? 

But let’s put tacos on hold for the moment and talk about the ingredients. There are three of them. Three! I don’t count salt, pepper, or water because, obviously. Really, I don’t know if you can call this a recipe. It’s so easy. 

There are a few methods for making avocado Greek yogurt salad dressing. If you’re like me, you go way out of your way to use as few dishes as possible. Even if, in the long haul, it means more work. If you go that route, you can use a fork to mash the avocado and mix it all together. If you want to ensure the smoothest dressing possible, go ahead and break out your blender or immersion blender. 

The avocado Greek yogurt salad dressing recipe doesn’t make a huge amount of dressing, so double/triple/whatever you need to do to feed your tribe. 

Once you’ve made the basic dressing, you can dress it up (pun intended) any way you like. I like it with lemon pepper seasoning ground in, but you do you. 

But enough rambling. Let’s keep this post short and simple, like this recipe. So here ya go: avocado Greek yogurt salad dressing!
