Creamy No Sugar Salad Dressing with Avocado

The following recipe shows you how to make a no sugar salad dressing which does not rely on sugar for flavor. If you are a fan of avocadoes, you will love this recipe which is like an avocado-flavored ranch dressing. Use low fat mayonnaise and low fat sour cream if you want, to cut some of the calories and fat, else just make it as it is. The buttermilk adds to the rich, creamy flavor, and the parsley and dill weed add a flavorful herby touch.

The most important ingredient is the avocado, so choose a nice ripe one; hard avocadoes are not much good for anything. Serve this delicious salad dressing with any kind of salad. It is especially good if you crumble crispy bacon over it. You can also serve it as a dip for nachos or crackers.

If you were considering using avocado in a salad, why not save some of it and use it in the dressing? Alternatively put the avocado in the dressing rather than in the salad itself. If you leave avocado slices sitting around they can turn brown. You will not have that problem if you put them in the dressing.

The nutty flavor of avocado pairs beautifully with mayo, sour cream and buttermilk, to bring you this thick, light green dressing. Add garlic, onion, dill, parsley and a little vinegar, and you have all the makings of a fine-tasting dressing. If you like guacamole, you should like this dressing although it is not the same. This one is creamier and offers a nice tang. A sugar-free dressing might sound unusual to you if you are used to commercial dressings but try this and you will agree it boasts all the flavor you need and does not need any sugar.
