Avocado is a delicious addition to salads and smoothies. It is also a perfect base for salad dressings due to its high fat content and silky texture. Packed with mono- and polyunsaturated fats — the “good” ones — all of those fat molecules help carry other flavors around in your mouth, making the salad taste even better.
Choose ripe avocados for this dressing. They should give a little, but not be too soft and have smooth skin. Because avocados oxidize quickly, turning from light green to gray in minutes, it's best to prepare this dressing right before eating the salad. Though the vinegar will keep it green for a while, it tastes best when added at the last minute.
