Summer Avocado Dressing

I was trying to remember a Jamie Oliver Green God Dressing the other day, and this is what I came up with. We have liked it so much, I think we’ve made it 5 times in the last couple weeks. Forgive my a-little-bit-inaccurate measurements; I have mostly eye-balled the amounts, and when I’ve gone back to measure, it hasn’t quite been the same. I also took a picture of this, but I can’t seem to make it look appealing. I’ll keep trying.

Summer Avocado Dressing

Place in a blender:

1 avocado, pitted and skinned
1/4 c. olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 clove garlic, smashed (or 2, if you like:)
3 sprigs fresh oregano, leaves removed from stems
3 sprigs fresh mint, stems removed
1 jalapeno pepper, stemmed and de-seeded (or a dash of cayenne pepper)
1 t. salt (approximately)

Blend all ingredients together until smooth. If desired, you can thin with water. Terrific on lettuce and tomatoes and cucumbers! We’ve been known to eat it by the spoonful, too.
