  3. I tried this recipe "Oil-Free Tomato-Basil Salad Dressing" and it was ok, not enough of something, not sure what it was missing for me, but I decided to add 1 whole avocado and Bam! It was amazing. I don't want to add oil, but also don't mind the healthy fats in avocado, so adding one made it creamy and more flavorful. So in the end I loved this recipe as long as I added the avocado. Thanks for sharing.
