Ingredients in Avocado Lime Dressing
Avocado: Get whole avocados that are slightly soft when you squeeze them. If needed, avocados can ripen on the counter. Once ripened, keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to use them.
Base: Greek yogurt or sour cream makes this dressing extra creamy.
Lime: Fresh lime not only adds a nice tangy flavor, it keeps the dressing from oxidizing (turning brown) so quickly. Lime can be replaced with lemon juice if you’d like.
Seasoning: Use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic, if desired. Add a little honey if you’d like.
- Replace parsley with fresh cilantro leaves.
- Stir in a pinch of ground cumin.
- Add other fresh herbs to your liking.
How to Make Avocado Lime Dressing
- Blend avocado and lime juice until smooth (as per the recipe below).
- Stir in remaining ingredients and whisk in milk to desired consistency.
- Refrigerate for 30 minutes before using.
This recipe uses a small food processor or blender for a smooth creamy texture. If you don’t have one, you can mash it very finely with a fork.
How to Use Avocado Lime Dressing
This creamy avocado dressing is great over romaine lettuce. Favorite additions include cherry tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, and radishes.
Use it as a dip for tortilla chips, drizzle over corn salad, tacos, or a black bean quinoa salad or burrito bowls. The possibilities are endless!
Keep avocado lime dressing in a jar and cover it with plastic wrap so the wrap is touching the top layer of the dressing. Keep for up to 3 days.
