Avocado Tahini Yogurt Salad Dressing

Avocado Tahini Yogurt Salad Dressing

This is the salad dressing we had with our salad on Thanksgiving. We made it with my dad’s homemade yogurt. I think it may be my very favorite salad dressing ever. It’s so flavorful, and chock full of healthy ingredients, so you don’t have to feel guilty about using extra dressing on your salad with this one.

I can’t take credit for this recipe … it’s my friend Rynn’s Tahini Yogurt salad dressing with an avocado twist. I was going to finally try making her yummy dressing this Thanksgiving. I had made up the salad and had just chopped up half an avocado to put on the salad, then started working on the dressing. The other half of the avocado still sitting there on the counter and it wasn’t long before it was just begging to be included in the dressing. The dressing was so good we had to make it again as soon as dad made more yogurt. I promised our friend Janet that I would post the recipe soon so she would always have the recipe.
