Creamy Avocado-Lime Dressing

Dish Type: More-than-Salads


  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime or lemon juice (about 2 limes or lemons)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup water, plus more as needed


Process all the ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth. Adjust the seasoning and add the water, 1 tablespoon at a time, plus more as needed to achieve the desired consistency (up to an additional 1/4 cup). Use within 1 day.

How to Use It:

We often use this recipe Mexican-inspired salads, with dark greens, corn, tomatoes, black beans, and grilled fajita veggies.

It’s also great in a massaged kale salad.
