Finally! It’s been years of feeling like I only have one go-to vinaigrette. No matter what, even when I would try to dabble in other dressings, my balsamic dressing was hands down my favorite, every time. With this salad dressing, as well as my new WHITE BALSAMIC, I finally have two more “favorite” dressings to put in my rotation.
This dressing is based off of a delicious salad dressing we bought at the farmer’s market while in Vail, Colorado. Within two weeks, we had already gone through the dressing. Immediately, I looked it up to see if we could get it shipped. Yes, we could- but either for 15$/bottle or in a pack of 6 for 10$ each. Not a great deal. Soooo I decided to see if I could make my own, based off of the ingredients they had listed in the dressing. It’s not quite exactly the same, but I still love it!
The reason I call this “Late Summer Avocado Dressing” is because it has a lightness to it. The avocado gives it some creaminess, but expect some tang and a more oil-based vinaigrette here.
