Avocado Dressing plus bacon mayo

A quick and tasty dressing, suitable for almost everyone. It's vegan and free of grains, nuts, wacky vegetable oils that I know you're supposed to avoid on the Paleo diet but can't remember why*, and it's chock full of good fats...just the thing for dressing up greens!
Blend together;
2 small avocados
juice of 1 medium lime (or 2 TBL vinegar)
2-6 cloves garlic, depending on taste
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
dash salt


*( and after months of exclusively eating home made olive oil dressings, I no longer care. It just TASTES better)

Here's a nifty mod if you've looked at those jars of baconnaisse and decided it was too full of vile, unnatural ingredients to be worth it.

I used my fresh mayo recipe but replaced most of the olive oil with the fat rendered from a pound and a half of Hormel Natural Selections bacon. If you think bacon fat is gritty and gross, you REALLY need to get some uncured, naturally raised bacon and try it. The fat is nearly clear! This is so dang good, it must be wrong.


  1. Hi. I stumbled across your blog yesterday and I made this recipe. I used half almond oil, half olive oil. Yum!

  2. I'm so excited to try this! I was wondering if you could tell me if you know how long it will keep?

  3. No clue, I eat it within a week. Kristen, sounds delish!

  4. As long as it is more than a day or two I'm good. :)
