Great sauce for the drummers. Much better than shop bought. I served with a mixed salad and jacket potatoes. Didn't do the green goddess salad.

Is there anything I could use instead of avocado as I'm allergic? Many thanks

Thanks for your question. You can make the dressing without the avocado - it'll still be tasty!
