This avocado and cilantro salad dressing is super easy to blend up in a hot minute! It is also a great use for avocados and fresh cilantro that are past their short prime. Instead of tossing out your slightly brown avocado and wilted cilantro, toss them into the blender with a little plant-based milk, lime juice (lemon works too,) and a few seasonings.
I love this dressing on my daily Big Green Salad, as well as tacos, wraps, and bean burgers.
Refrigerate the dressing in a small jar or airtight container for up to one week, or freeze it in an ice cube tray for future use or for packing in your lunch.
Note: Your dressing may turn out darker green than the recipe photo depending upon the ripeness of your avocado.
