This is creamy avocado lime dressing is delicious, fresh and tangy. It can also be used as a dip or topping for meats. The avocado creaminess tastes great with Mexican fare as well.

This recipe was born out of an abundance of avocados from a Costco run. Did you ever impulsively by too much at Costco? Does anyone ever not impulsively buy too much at Costco? Well I had more avocados than I could eat and two tubs of dips in my refrigerator so guacamole was out. Then I remembered I could make this creamy avocado lime dressing with them and voila.
All the things you can do with avocados
I have a few avocado recipes that I really like. A super easy low carb snack are these tomato, avocado & salami snacks. I also have some a tasty recipe for Greek guacamole and they are great in smoothies like this mango match smoothie. Lastly would you believe I put avocados in this low carb chocolate peanut butter pudding?
How do you like your dressing?
This dressing came out really thick. I even added some water to it to thin it out but it’s still thick. Therefore I think you could even use it as a dip or a topping on chicken or fish. As a dressing I mixed it with my greens first and then added my toppings. It was delicious.
It’s very tangy and I like that in a salad dressing. However if you want a bit of sweetness, orange juice would be a nice addition.
Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing Recipe
Of course this is ridiculously easy to make. Just throw your ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend well and then add to a bottle or jar. By the way, I have a mini food processor like this that is perfect for these small batch recipes. I used avocados, cilantro, lime, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin and olive oil.
Well I hope you like this creamy avocado dressing. I used mine up quickly but I wish I would have tried it was fish or chicken or even on tacos because it would have been quite tasty. Now that I’m thinking of it, try it on a turkey sandwich or wrap. I bet it would be perfect! Well I think I should head out to Costco again so I can make some more. Enjoy.
