Creamy Avocado Salad Dressing Recipe

This salad dressing is a vegan recipe that is made with avocado, cilantro, lemon or lime juice, olive oil, garlic, and a little jalapeno. The avocado is the main ingredient that gives the dressing its rich flavor and creaminess.

The maple syrup gives the dressing a touch of sweetness while the lemon juice brings in a pop of sourness. Both give this dressing a kind of sweet and sour flavor.

Finally, I the cilantro and jalapeno add a little spice and a mix of lemon, peppery and pungent taste!
