This Creamy Salad Dressing packs the perfect punch of flavor; made with feta cheese, avocado, lemon juice, and jalapeño. Get ready to use it on everything! 

 

Creamy Salad Dressing

Cue the little old woman in the hot sauce commercials... I put this stuff (keeping it PG here) on EVERYTHING.

I had the hardest time naming this recipe because it really does have so many uses. It is a dressing/dip/sauce hybrid. We put it on salads, tacos, rice bowls, and use it as a dip for fresh veggies. 

The combination of avocado and feta cheese creates a creamy texture that goes perfectly with the tangy fresh flavor. Throw all the ingredients into a blender or food processor and you're minutes away from the perfect dressing.

Creamy Salad Dressing Ingredients:

To make this dressing, you will need the following ingredients. See the full recipe card below for detailed amounts and instructions! 

  • Feta cheese - I use the crumbled so it blends better, but any will do. I love the flavor and texture this gives the dressing.
  • Avocado - Adding one avocado creates the creamiest dressing. Don't skip!
  • Jalapeño - I've made this dressing without the jalapeño before when I ran out and it was just as tasty. Personally like it better with though! Sometimes I add 2 to taste it more. If you're worried about the heat, I have found that if you remove the seeds it isn't spicy at all. Just gives great flavor.  
  • Olive oil - Such as any dressing.
  • Water - I found my favorite texture for this dressing is with ½ cup of water, but feel free to adapt it to how you like your dressings. 
  • Lemon juice - Love the tang that the lemon gives this dressing. So good!
  • Cilantro - Fresh or dried. 
  • Salt & pepper - I keep it at ¼ teaspoon for each in ours, but do a taste test and add more if you like.
