Creamy Avocado-Miso Dressing

Creamy Avocado-Miso Dressing

Whip up this quick dressing when you want to use up any ripe or slightly overripe avocado that’s too soft for slicing. The miso gives the creamy dressing a delicately sweet complexity, and the lemon and vinegar cut through the buttery avocado. Use this protein-rich dressing to generously coat your hearty green salad, warm grain bowl or vegetables charred on the grill.
