Fresh Homemade Jalapeno Avocado Dressing

Summertime is fresh food time! We take full advantage of the vast array of fresh fruits and veggies, just like I know you do.

If you love avocados, if you love a little spice in your life, then you’re going to LOVE this fresh homemade dressing.

Fresh Homemade Jalapeno Avocado Dressing


Fresh Homemade Jalapeno Avocado Dressing


  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar (you can substitute with red or white wine vinegar, depending on your taste preference)
  • 1/2 - 3/4 tsp salt, depending on taste
  • 4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 4 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 cups cilantro, chopped
  • 1-3 jalapenos, chopped (can substitute jarred jalapenos. 1/4 cup)


  1. Add all ingredients into a blender, starting with oil, vinegar and lime juice.
  2. Blend on high until completely smooth.
  3. Use immediately.
  4. Store remainder in the fridge.


* You can omit jalapenos and it's still delicious!

* Use as a dressing or dip. Nom.

* You can enjoy this all year round, by substituting per-packaged avocado instead of fresh avocados.

* Recipe modified from Oasis Advanced Wellness

It’s light, it’s creamy, it’s seemingly decadent (cause. it. is!), but the reality is it’s packed with nutrition and health!

Look at it!

Fresh Homemade Jalepeno Avocado Dressing

Don’t you want to dunk a sweet pepper slice into that jar? Yeah, you do!

While Garry prefers most of his food spicy, I am not as big a fan of the heat as he is. Our solution: Blend ingredients without jalapenos. Once blended, pour a half of the dressing out of blender for my use. Add jalapenos to the remainder in blender and blend until well mixed. If you do this method, you might also want to cut the jalapenos amount by half…but not Garry, nope! The more the ‘picier!

As noted in the recipe, I’m sure this dressing would turn out just as delish with pre-packaged mashed avocados (when you need a taste of summer in the winter!).

Use on salads, baked potatoes, as a dip, with pizza!  Let us know how you like to eat it. Unless it’s with cake…don’t tell us that. That’s just wrong.

Happy Nomming, Y’all!
