Today we are keeping it short and sweet.
This Simple Cilantro Lime Dressing takes no time to put together but it packs SO MUCH FLAVOR!
Cilantro brings such an amazing flavor to any dish (so long as you aren't one of those people who think it tastes like soap...poor souls).
This dressing has citrus from the lime juice, a bright freshness from the cilantro...and, oh...did I mention the creaminess comes from avocado???
Any excuse to use avocado, right?
To add even more flavor to this, I also threw in some garlic and cumin. Just the essentials.
You can water this down to make a salad dressing or keep it thicker and use it as a dip.
Either way you can't go wrong.
