Green Dream Avocado Hemp Seed Dressing

A versatile salad dressing that can be used also as a dip

1 avocado, medium sized
1 large handful fresh basil (about 1 cup)
¼ cup avocado oil (or olive oil)
¼ cup water
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 Tablespoon white balsamic vinegar (or white wine vinegar)
1 garlic clove​

2 Tablespoons fresh chives
2 to 4 Kalamata olives (or 1 teaspoon capers)
a little ground black pepper
pinch of sea salt

2 Tablespoons hemp hearts plus 2 to 4 Tablespoons additional water


1.     Blend all ingredients together in a high speed blender or use an immersion blender in a mason jar.

2.     Start by adding ¼ cup of water as listed in the recipe, and you can then add a little more if you want a thinner consistency. If adding in hemp seeds you will need to add in little extra water too.

3.     Note: I keep avocados in the freezer in small air tight baggies already peeled and chopped. This is such a great way to save ripe avocados for use later. I simply defrost the frozen avocado by putting the bag into a bowl of hot water.
