Avocado Hemp Dressing

Avocado blended with garlic and hemp oil makes an unusual and delicious salad dressing.

Yield 1½ cups
Time 5 minutes
  • chef’s knife
  • fork
  • bowl
  • 2 very ripe avocados
  • ¼ c hemp oil
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 1-2 T cilantro, minced
  • pepper
  • 1-2 t Ume plum vinegar
  • water
Directions Cut avocados in half. Hold the pitted half firmly, and strike with the chef’s knife. The knife should stick to the pit, making it easy for you to pull it out of the avocado. Repeat with other avocado.

Scoop avocado out of skins and place in bowl. Mash with fork, then stir in hemp oil, lemon juice, cilantro, pepper, and vinegar. Thin with water, if necessary. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Notes A thicker dressing can also serve as a tasty dip or be drizzled over steamed vegetables.
