Thank you for the kind words on the Shamrock’n half marathon, it’s been a tough training season which makes me look forward to better running weather ahead with a more aggressive training schedule. It’s been spotty this week while still recovering and keeping busy with work. But nice to rest a little.

I must be a messy eater. It’s hard not to be with huge salads coated in more avocado dressing. I know, more avocado recipes – have I mentioned I’m ready for spring? And can’t resist buying them in bulk when they’re on sale. This simple avocado dressing is tangy with a savory depth and a slight flare from red pepper flakes that works. It packs two other ingredients I’ve been obsessed with lately too – ginger and miso paste, but no oil or sugar. This simple list of ingredients is fast to toss into a blender after a long day.
Avocado Miso Dressing
- 1 avocado, seeded and scooped
- 2 tbsp. miso paste
- 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1” chunk fresh ginger
- dash of rep pepper flakes (optional)
- 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
- ½ cup water as needed
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Serve and enjoy! Makes 4 servings.
And yum, the texture can be as thick and creamy as you want. I like it very thick because it’s avocado!
Miso paste adds tangy umami with a hint of lively heat perfect for coating while not overpowering.
This versatile dressing goes with just about any salad ingredients, even the chopped apple I added to this one.
