Creamy Avocado Wasabi Dressing

Recipe by Julesong

This is a nice, tangy dressing, and also makes a good topping for crab cakes! Prep time includes refrigeration.

Perfect and interesting accompaniment for some smoked salmon. I was looking for something green (for colour) to top some dark rye bread with smoked salmon. There was already a herb thingy so didn't want a repeat of that. This fit the bill. It was very hot, but using just a bit it was great. I used sour cream , lime juice instead of lemon, and fresh garlic (just minced half a clove). Very nice balance of hot , tangy, sweet and salty. All proportions are perfect.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Puree all ingredients together well, adding sake or other dry white wine to the desired consistency, then chill for at least 1 hour.
  2. Serve as dressing.
  3. Also good with crab cakes!
  4. Note: make sure to use a fully ripe avocado for this recipe! It needs to be ripe and rich - Californian (Haas or Gwen) avocados have a buttery and richer flavor than avocados from Florida or other areas. Otherwise your dressing will come out tasting a little flat.
