Creamy Zesty Avocado Lime Dressing
Prep time
Total time
A tangy, creamy Avocado Lime Dressing. This is my go-to dressing to serve with Mexican food. This dressing tastes amazing with quesadillas, tacos, burritos or salad!
Recipe type: Sauce
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 1 heaping cup sauce
  • 2 avocados
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice*
  • ⅓ cup fresh cilantro, lightly packed
  • ¼ jalapeno pepper*
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ½ tbsp coconut sugar or cane sugar
  • ⅓ - ½ cup water
  1. Add all the ingredients into a blender (I used an immersion stick blender - a high powered blender will also work) and blend for a minute or so until creamy smooth. Note: Start with ⅓ cup of water and add more water by the tbsp until desired consistency is reached. I use ⅓ cup of water if using this recipe as a thick dressing (see photo in bowl) or ½ cup of water if using this dressing as a sauce (see burrito photo).
  2. Smother onto burritos, tacos, enjoy as a salad dressing or a dip for quesadillas!
1) If you are generally sensitive to lime flavors in recipes, start out with 2 tbsp of lime juice and work your way up to 4 tbsp of lime juice to taste. I like a really pronounced lime taste so I use a ¼ cup in this recipe.
2) If you want this dressing spicier, add half of the jalapeno pepper or some of the jalapeno seeds into the dressing before blending it.
