Easy, Creamy Avocado Dressing

Total Time
10 min
10 min
This easy salad dressing is luxuriously creamy, bright with lemon zest and juice, and savory with a hint of cheesy flavor from nutritional yeast. Avocado is the star, contributing its rich, slightly sweet flavor and supreme creaminess. In a blender, it emulsifies beautifully with water and oil into a dressing that stays stable (creamy, without browning) for days in the fridge—so you can make it on the weekend for salads throughout the week. You can use fresh avocado or frozen; if using the latter, you might need to blend a little longer to get the dressing completely smooth.



1 cup(s), chopped

Nutritional yeast

¼ cup(s)

Lemon zest

1 tsp

Fresh lemon juice

¼ cup(s)

Extra virgin olive oil

2 Tbsp

Kosher salt

½ tsp


  1. In a blender, combine ¾ cup water, avocado, nutritional yeast, lemon zest and juice, oil, and salt. Blend on high speed until completely smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the jar as needed, 1 to 2 minutes. If dressing is too thick, blend in additional water 1 tbsp at a time, until just runny.
  2. Serving size: 3 tbsp
