We’ve all been there: You’re making a salad, you’re short on time, and you’re sick of that bottled dressing in your fridge. The next time that happens to you, make this dressing that requires just three ingredients (that you probably already have).
I discovered this instant dressing in our new Five-Ingredient Dinners cookbook. Like everything in there, it’s quick and easy, and it uses minimal ingredients. All it takes is some avocado, olive oil, and pickling brine from whatever pickle you have in your fridge. I used pickled jalapeño brine, which I had on hand and is what the book calls for, but the beauty of this recipe is how substitution friendly it is—you can use the pickling brine of your choice to mix and match with your salad or personal tastes.
