Cilantro Lime Dressing

Cilantro Lime Dressing

Here is one of my favorite salad dressings that I use on simple garden salads, buddha bowls, and even tacos! It goes especially well with any dish including avocados, such as my Southwestern Summer Salad! Cilantro lime dressing is best made in a blender to get a smooth texture and beautiful green color.

    • Hi Larissa, if the stems are tender, go ahead and use them. It will be smoother if you only use the leaves. The photo pictured was actually of a cilantro chutney I made (couldn’t find a good photo of the cilantro dressing!) which did have a lot of stems in it.

  1. This dressing is absolutely delicious. Sometimes I give up on eating salad because of few dressing choices. With this recipe, I can eat salad every day again plus is healthy. Thank you so much!
