Avocado Buttermilk Dressing

I have a running neon pink post-it list on my fridge of things I want to cook. I really want to recreate Seven Stars Bakery's vegetarian sandwich, make killer summer BBQ chicken on the grill, and bake Anadama bread. I just crossed this avocado buttermilk dressing off the list after weeks and weeks of thinking about it.

This is the type of food that I crave - creamy, salty, and rich. First I used it to dress a simple green salad of baby lettuces from the garden but have since used it as a sandwich spread and dip for fresh snap peas. If you have an unhealthy love for mayo this could be your new best friend.

 Avocado Buttermilk Dressing: 

1 ripe avocado, scooped out
1 cup full fat buttermilk, shaken
1/4 yellow onion
1 garlic clove
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
juice of 1 lemon
salt & pepper

If you have a powerful blender just toss it all in and blend until creamy but if you are worried about the onion and garlic breaking down chop those up first.

I store mine in a mason jar in the fridge and it has kept well although the flavor slowly fades over time so try to use it up within a couple days. This dressing is a great excuse to simplify your salads this summer. Just a mix of greens and herbs can be very special.


  1. It was so funny to read that you have the veggie sandwich from Seven Stars on your list of things to make on your fridge... I have it on my list of things to make on my fridge, too! It's on the agenda for next week :) Can't wait to hear how yours turns out!

  2. Sarah, what a great idea for a dressing. I will definitely try that!
