Creamy lemony salad dressing

I make most of my own salad dressings. Here's one I did today that came out well and was a big hit at my house.

1/5 block firm tofu, drained and gently blotted
1/4 cup olive oil
juice from half a large lemon (really squeeze it!)
1/8 avocado (I had a tiny sliver left over, probably even tastier if you use 1/4)
1/2 t salt
1/2 t Spike seasoning (optional but I think it made a difference)
dash of black pepper
2 T sesame seeds

Throw the first four ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Drizzle more olive oil while blending until it's the consistency you want. Then add salt, Spike, pepper, and sesame seeds, and pulse until mixed in.

This makes a cup or so of dressing and I only use a tablespoon or so per serving because a little goes a long way.
