Silken Avocado Salad Dressing and Dip

June 23, 2009 | Condiments, Salads

I don’t cook a lot with tofu, but about a year ago I had to write a piece about tofu for the Gaiam website, so I developed a few recipes. This one was my favorite, and it’s a nice dressing for summer salads so I thought I’d share it today.
When you’re buying tofu for this recipe, make sure to get the silken variety that purees easily. For grilling tofu or other preparations, use firm or extra firm tofu.

Silken Avocado Salad Dressing and Dip
Yields 2 cups

The lemon juice in this dressing adds a nice kick and also keeps the avocado green.

2 garlic cloves
8 ounces silken tofu
Zest of 1 lemon
¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 ripe avocado, peeled and seeded

Mince garlic in a blender or food processor. Add tofu, lemon zest and juice, salt and pepper and blend until well combined. Roughly chop avocado and add to mixture, process until smooth. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate.
