Thick and Creamy Avocado Lemon Tarragon Dressing

serves 2 ~ $2.98 per serving



  • 1 avocado ($1.49)
  • 1/2 large cucumber ($.69)
  • 1/4 medium onion
  • juice and zest of one lemon ($.69)
  • 1 tablespoon agave ($.10)
  • 1 teaspoon tarragon ($.10)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper 
  • 1/2 -1 cup water for blending


a blender, puree all the dressing ingredients until smooth and creamy.
This can be a very thick dressing or a bit thinner, depending on how
much water is added. I used all the dressing on two salads, but any
leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to a few days.
