Tangy Citrus Dressing

Avocados are a good source of healthy fat

Avocados are a good source of healthy fat and this vinaigrette-type dressing takes advantage of that by using avocado oil as a base. And at about 2 grams of carbs it’s a good fit for any low-carb diet.

Tangy Citrus Dressing

(serves )


  • 2 T avocado oil
  • 1 T lemon juice
  • 2 T orange juice
  • 1 T orange zest (grated orange peel)
  • ½ honey
  • ¼ t black pepper
  • ¼ t salt

To make:

Combine all ingredients in the mixing bowl and whisk together. Will keep for up to a month in the refrigerator; shake well to mix before using. Avocado oil may solidify while in the refrigerator. If this happens, simply bring dressing to room temperature and shake well.



This is not quite the same recipe as the one found in the DWD Blueprint recipe books. The recipes in the DWD recipe books have been “slimmed down” so that they’ll fit into a 700-calorie-per-day diet, and using this version while you’re on the DWD diet could push your calorie count far out of range. If you’re currently using the DWD system, please use the recipes included with the program.
