This creamy vegan avocado dressing doubles as a delicious veggie dip! Wonderful, fresh flavors of lemon, basil with a nice tangy touch.
This is the delicious creamy avocado lemon 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. And I love the flavorful tang from the fresh garlic and white wine vinegar! It’s a great choice for a fresh, healthy dip with an assortment of your favorite veggies. Plus perfect for parties or simply snacking at home.
Feel free to make it ahead of time and let it chill in the fridge for maximum flavor. Otherwise it’s great served immediately! Hope you enjoy as well.
