This creamy combo of avocado with cilantro and lime will convince you to never buy the bottled stuff again! This dressing is both easy and delicious which are two of my favourite things. 🙂
Look at this avocado! Who needs cream when you have this decadent, velvety fruit to add to your freshly made summer salad dressings?
How about some cilantro? If you don’t like it I feel sorry for you. 😉
I had planned on making this dressing in my food processor, but I felt like I’ve been making so many recipes with it lately. And to be perfectly honest, I just didn’t feel like lugging the thing out and dealing with the racket it makes. I wanted simple and I did not feel like doing a ton of damn dishes. 😉
Enter my hand blender!
OK, so this is how easy this dressing recipe is.
I simply measured all of the dressing ingredients into a large mason jar and blended it up. I took two minutes total and including my knife and spoon, four dishes total.
The hand blender worked like a charm. Perfectly smooth and pourable.
Creamy, tangy with that undeniable fresh, clean cilantro flavour. I had it tossed over a simple plate of romaine but I plan to use it on some bean or grain based dinner salads. What’s better than the summer season for fresh salads with amazing dressings. Try this one and you won’t be disappointed.
