Creamy Cucumber-Basil Salad Dressing

This is our newest favorite salad dressing and we have already made it a few times in the past couple of weeks. Cucumber and basil works so well together, avocado makes it nice'n'creamy and we need the heat from the green chillies. It is raw, vegan, oil/sugar free and can be used as a salad dressing or as a sauce for raw noodles.

Mini cucumbers - 2 ( or 1/3rd  of an English cucumber)
Avocado - 1/2
Basil - 15-20 leaves
Green Chillies - 2-3
Lemon juice - from 1 lemon
Sea salt - 1/2 tsp
Filtered water - 1/4 cup (optional if you want a thinner dressing)


Slice cucumber roughly and add to blender jar, along with green chillies, lemon juice, salt and water (if using). Blend in high speed until everything is pureed well. Mix in the avocado meat  and continue blending on low speed just till it is mixed well and looks creamy (takes only a few seconds). Now add basil and continue for a few more seconds on low speed till basil is just chopped and mixed well into the dressing.
