Avocado Dressing / Dip

I made this dressing from scratch on a whim and omg! I swear I wanted to drink it out of shot glass! Ignore the honey jar, I didn't have a small mason jar so this is what I used.  I have seriously considered marketing this but I figured I would just do the next best thing and just share the recipe. Instead of sugar I used a secret ingredient, scroll down to see 😉 best of all 2 tbsp is only 1 smart point!!

Ok I'll tell you....my secret ingredient is mango! I wasn't sure what to call this recipe. I originally made it as a dressing but then I used it as a dip for an empanada and it was awesome, then I used it on top of rice and beans and it was awesome too. I bet it would be delicious as a sandwich spread.....genius!! So I guess it's a dressing and a dip or a spread or for whatever you want!

Avocado dressing/dip


  • 1/2 avocado (2.5 oz) reserve pit
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed cilantro
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 red onion (3 oz)
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 small jalapeno
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 oz ripe mango

Instructions:  Just add everything in the blender and blend until smooth.  Pour it into a jar with the pit of the avocado (prevents browning) It lasted nicely for 7 days. I'm not sure if it would go any longer because mine finished! yields 1 and 3/4 cups
