Avocado Cilantro Lime Dressing

March 1, 2014

I’ve started buying avocados weekly from Costco.  That would be 6 per week.  Large ones.  For someone who used to be a self-proclaimed avocado hater, this is big.  We figured out a recipe for our favorite guacamole, they go with our eggs and any mexican-ish dish.  Even on toast with a little bit of lime and garlic salt mixed in.  They are versatile, full of good fat, and make everything more delicious!  I posted this recipe over on Western Garden’s blog (where I have begun blogging for them!  Hence the neglect on this poor bloggy).  Since this is where I store all of my favorite recipes, I am reposting it here!

This dressing is tangy and delicious!  I made it for salad (when we had our 93 year old Great Grandma over for dinner, and she raved about it!), but I think today I will try it on a tuna melt.  Because after cleaning up ALL day yesterday after two sick kids, this mama needs some comfort food.  Especially since Hubs has been out of town on business, so I’m on call 24/7.  Let me tell you, I’ve never been so grateful for my washing machine!  I really think they should start making them with a garbage disposal.  This revelation came last night after both of my sickies threw up their dinner.  In bed.  After sickie #1 threw up 5 other times yesterday.  One of which was in the car.  With all the other kids nearby groaning loudly about how gross it was.  And they were right.  So if you need comfort food like I do, or if you just need an avocado fix, try this delish dressing!

Avocado Cilantro Lime Dressing
1 clove garlic
juice of 1 lime
1/2 ripe avocado
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, stems removed
1/2 tsp agave
1/8 tsp cumin
dash cayenne pepper
fresh cracked salt and pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp plain greek yogurt
2 Tbsp milk

Add all ingredients to your blender jar.  Process until smooth and creamy.  This dressing is very thick, to make it more pourable for salads, thin with milk until it reaches your desired consistency.
