Avocado season is upon us- and they are reasonably priced! Below is an easy dressing to fancy up your greens using your local cilantro.
1 large ripe avocado
3/4 bunch cilantro (about 1 cup loosely packed)
Juice of 1 lime
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, grated or minced
1-2 Tbsp red wine vinegar up to a 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
Scoop out flesh of avocado and place in blender or food processor. Add cilantro, citrus juices, garlic, 1 Tbsp of red wine vinegar and olive oil. Blend on low, adding remaining red wine vinegar and white balsamic vinegar to taste as you go, until emulsified. You may want to add more olive oil and vinegar/citrus juices to thin out. This dressing is quite thick, but if you add too much liquid, it does take away from the delicate flavor of the avocado.
