Healthy Creamy Avocado Cilantro Lime Dressing

Summer has us dreaming of fresh salads, but sometimes you can feel like your salad game is in a rut. While a trusty olive oil/balsamic/Dijon dressing never fails, sometimes you need something new to shake things up.

Enter this recipe from GimmeDelicious.

Like the blog post title tells you, it’s a combo of avocado, cilantro, and lime, and – oh boy – it is the  perfect combination of avocado, cilantro, and lime. I made this this past winter and I swear it felt like a blast of refreshing summer.

You’re probably drooling right about now (I definitely am) so without further ado, here’s the recipe:


  • 1 avocado
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup low-cost sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice (or lemon juice or white vinegar)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • water


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender
  2. Process until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides a few times
  3. Thin the dressing out with about 1/3 cup of water (give or take, adjust to your preference)
  4. You’re done! If you have leftovers, keep them in an airtight container for up to 1-2 weeks.
