SPRING IS FINALLY HERE. Isn’t it? I dunno. Michigan doesn’t know, that’s for sure. Yesterday Ben took out the trash and remarked that it felt “like winter.” Today as I write this, the sun is shining brightly, so you won’t hear complaints from me. My kids are just dyinnnnnng to be outside every second of the day and I try to comply with those requests as much as possible (I want to be out, too!). But they get so confused when they can’t wear shorts and sandals – Mr. Sun is a deceiving guy.

I’m talking about warmer weather, again, mostly because I’m oh-so-ready for it, but also because this recipe screams summer to me. It takes five minutes to make so you’ll be out of the kitchen fast, it uses healthy fats (avocado) for great creaminess so I’ll you’ll look great in your bikini, and it’s such a bright green cheerful color! I’ll be sharing a filling salad tomorrow that uses this dressing so make sure to check back for that! UPDATE: It’s this quinoa salad with avocado dressing – a must-try!

About this Avocado Lime Dressing:

This one is for all you cilantro-haters out there. I’m clearly a cilantro lover, but I know many of you are not. And when I did a quick search for creamy avocado lime dressings, many (if not all!) contained cilantro. Instead of leaving it out completely, I wanted to replace it with another powerhouse flavor. It just so happens to be one of my favorites – cumin. It gives this dressing a nice warm flavor that contrasts perfectly with the bright citrus of the lime. It gives this avocado lime dressing that little extra something that will have you coming back for more.

It’s made in minutes using a blender or a food processor. It’s super versatile, and you could even spread it on a sandwich. Make sure to try it on this quinoa salad with pinto beans and red bell peppers.

  1. This dressing looks so good! Whenever I make any kind of Mexican food, cumin is involved, so this dressing complements that perfectly :)

  2. sounds delish

  3. Any idea how long this will keep in the refrigerator? I know I will love it but my husband may or may not. It’ll take me a while to finish it by myself!
