Ingredients in Avocado Lime Dressing

Avocado: Get whole avocados that are slightly soft when you squeeze them. If needed, avocados can ripen on the counter. Once ripened, keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to use them.

Base: Greek yogurt or sour cream makes this dressing extra creamy.

Lime: Fresh lime not only adds a nice tangy flavor, it keeps the dressing from oxidizing (turning brown) so quickly. Lime can be replaced with lemon juice if you’d like.

Seasoning: Use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic, if desired. Add a little honey if you’d like.

Variations

  • Replace parsley with fresh cilantro leaves.
  • Stir in a pinch of ground cumin.
  • Add other fresh herbs to your liking.
