Although I love my olive oil and apple cider vinegar dressing, I wanted to change it up last week when we made the cobb salad. (The though of a hard boil egg and apple cider vinegar made my stomach turn) We always have avocados lying around the house, so I grabbed one and decided to make a new creamy dressing. The avocado needs to be soft though, the recipe does not work as well if the avocado is hard – you will be adding a lot more liquid to get the right consistency.
This creamy paleo dressing contains all the good green things in life – avocado, lime, and cilantro. You can even throw in a jalapeno to spice it up! It is so simple, and easy – just a few minutes in a blender and it’s ready to top any salad or even a taco!
Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing
- 1 avocado
- ¼ cup fresh lime juice
- ¼ cup chopped cilantro leaves
- 2 tbs olive oil
- ½ tsp cumin
- Salt to taste
- Optional: ½ jalapeno pepper, seeded
Simply add in all the ingredients to a food processor or blender, and pulse on high until smooth. (Add up to ¼ cup of water to thin if needed) Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
