Vibrant green, full of fresh cilantro and citrus flavor, Avocado Cilantro Lime Dressing offers a flavor-packed, low-glycemic salad dressing recipe you can make easily at home.

The avocado adds a creamy, velvety note and thickness to the dressing and pairs well with the grassy herbal flavor of the fresh cilantro and citrusy tang of lime. Apple cider vinegar provides acidity that's balanced by the sweetness of the allulose, and one garlic clove gives just enough savory pungency.

This 10-ingredient salad dressing recipe makes a plant-based, vegan- and vegetarian-friendly dressing that can be blitzed quickly in a food processor or blender and stored in the refrigerator for up to one week. Toss it with any salad, drizzle on top of poached fish, grilled meats, or as a condiment to dress up a veggie sandwich, black bean burger, grass-fed beef or bison burger.
