This mint lime hemp avocado dressing is delicious on salads, as well as burgers, wraps, and bowls. The perfect summer salad dressing with fresh flavours and tons of nutrients!
This is going to be a short post, since it’s a preview for tomorrow’s recipe, which is a veggie burger to use this mint lime hemp avocado dressing on! (I know, it’s a wordy recipe name.) I wanted to share this dressing as a separate recipe because its use isn’t limited as a veggie burger topping. It just happens to be my family’s favourite salad dressing of late.
Mint is an acquired taste, and if you haven’t quite acquired a taste for it, this delicious dressing just might do it. With its lime and mint combination, it reminds me of a mojito! Plus, this dressing boasts an impressive roster of nutrients: monounsaturated fat from avocado; omegas 3 and 6 essential fatty acids from the hemp; and green goodness from mint.

You’ll need fresh mint, hemp, lime juice, avocado, extra virgin olive oil, nutritional yeast, maple syrup, light miso, sea salt, pepper, garlic, and water.

I’m keeping this post short but sweet, but as I said, I’ll be back tomorrow with a recipe for Greek Lentil Walnut Burgers that you can top with this dressing!
