Cilantro Lime Dressing with Pepitas

Light and citrusy, this dressing goes with many different salads, bowls, and even tacos!

Cilantro lime dressing is of my favorite salad dressings that I use on simple salads, buddha bowls, and even tacos!

It goes especially well with any dish including avocados, such as my Southwestern Summer Salad! And recently I made a chickpea salad with avocado and tomato, and cilantro lime dressing was the perfect match.

Chickpea Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing

To get a smooth texture and beautiful green color, it’s best to make cilantro lime dressing in a blender. You can use the leaves and tender stems of the cilantro. Just trim off the roots and tough stems at the ends of the bunch.
