This is a very good dressing that uses healthy fats. I tasted the dressing before adding the cumin, and loved it, but did not care for the cumin after adding it. I think it's a 4 1/2 with the cumin, and a 5 star without the cumin. But that is just my preference;try it both ways and decide for yourself. Thank you for sharing!

This was a fantastic salad dressing. When I went to get my avocado, it had gone bad, so I substituted mayonnaise. We all loved it. I can just imagine how much better it would be with the avocado. Thanks, jesnmeg.
