Avocado Herb Dressing

This is a delicious dressing that is chock full of avocado, herbs, lemon juice and a topped off with a little olive oil.  All those healthy fats, your skin will glow!  I originally made it to go on chef salads, but also used it to top black bean burgers, and as a vegetable dip.  It's very versatile.  I also licked the spatula as I was transferring it out of the food processor, but that's not an official serving suggestion.

Avocado Herb Dressing

1 large avocado
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Handful each of basil and parsley (about 1/2 cup each)
Kosher salt
Black pepper
Water, as needed

In a food processor, combine avocaod, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and herbs.
Blend well until smooth.
With the motor running, slowly add water until desired consistency. (More for a pourable dressing, less for a scoopable dip.  I did something in the middle, about 2 Tablespoons.)
Season with salt and pepper to taste.

This keeps in the fridge for several days, but the top layer starts to turn brown from the avocado.  If that doesn't bother you, no problem, if it does, eat up!
