How to Make Avocado Lime Dressing
This dressing is made with the following ingredients:
- Avocado: This dressing uses avocado to add creaminess. If you don’t have an avocado on hand, feel free to skip it and the dressing will still turn out delicious.
- Lime: The tanginess in the dressing comes from the lime juice. It also aids digestion. I love the flavor lime adds to any dressing!
- Cilantro: The star of the dressing is the fresh cilantro. It gives this dressing a boost of fresh flavor.
- Cashews: Add another layer of creaminess to your avocado lime dressing with raw cashews.
- Extra-virgin Olive Oil: The base of any high-quality dressing starts with high-quality olive oil.
- Jalapeno: Jalapeno gives it enough of a kick to know it’s there, without making the dressing spicy!
- Garlic: If you’re a fan of garlic, you know how much it elevates anything!
Then all you need is a food processor or blender. Process until smooth and creamy. Adjust seasoning, if needed.
Tips on Storing your Dressing
- Store your newly prepped avocado lime dressing in an air-tight glass container in the fridge.
- If the dressing starts to get a little too thick, just simply add a tablespoon of water to thin it down.
- This dressing will last about 3 days in the fridge, however, it’s always best to use it up in a couple of days!
