Creamy Avocado Lemon Basil Dressing + Dip


This is the creamy dressing I use for the Rainbow Chopped Salad, but we also love it as a veggie dip! Fresh basil and lemon pair wonderfully with the creamy avocado, with just the right amount of tang from the garlic and white wine vinegar. Enjoy!


Vegan, gluten-free

Ingredients
1 avocado
Juice from 1 lemon
1/2 cup lightly packed fresh basil
1-2 cloves garlic
1 tsp. agave/honey
2 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp. salt

Directions
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Store covered in the fridge. Will keep for about 4-5 days.
