My husband loves dressing with his salad. I’ve never seen anyone who pours so much dressing on his salad, it’s a wonder he can even taste the lettuce and other ingredients. As you know prepared dressings in the grocery store can be quite expensive, especially when you are going through them so fast. So I’ve decided to start making my own dressings. I love Ina Garten’s Grapefruit and Avocado Salad recipe. So that is where I got the inspiration for this Grapefruit Avocado dressing.
1/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 medium halved peeled avocado, seeded and cut into 1/2 inch chunks
4 basil leaves
1 large pink grapefruit (zested and juiced)
salt and pepper
1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a food processor or blender and process for 1 minute until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
2. Zest 1/2 of the grapefruit and add to blender.
3. Add juice of grapefruit and blend until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve over field greens.
If you don’t use all of the dressing, you can transfer the remaining dressing to an airtight container and refrigerate. It will be good for up to 5 days.
