Recipe Tips

Look for the dark-skinned Hass avocados that are grown in California to make this creamy dressing. Serve the salad at room temperature over baby spring salad greens or watercress—and if there are any leftovers, cover them carefully with plastic wrap and refrigerate no longer than a day, as the dressing will darken.
