How to Make Mixed Salad with Avocado Dressing

Step-by-Step

  • 1To make the dressing, puree the mayonnise, garlic, onion, lime juice, thyme, salt, pepper, bay leaf, avocado and water in a blender. With the motor running, add the oil in a thin stream until the fixture forms and emulsion, about 2 minutes. I put the dressing in a clean mason jar cap it and chill till ready to use...........at least an hour to let the flavors come out.
  • 2Arrange lettuce on a pretty festive platter. Top with the avocados and tomatoes. Drizzle with the dressing, garnish with the green onions and serve immediately.
