Whenever I see avocados on sale at my grocery store (10 for $10 – best deal ever!), I can’t help but buy a million of them. My daughter, my youngest son and I can eat avocados every day so they really don’t go to waste when I bring home a bagful, especially since I’ve learned that keeping them in my fridge helps them last longer. Normally I just serve our avocados sliced up in a salad, smashed on toast or straight up for the little ones, but every now and then I get adventurous and throw them into a smoothie or make a dressing like this Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing.

I love including avocados in quesadillas like these Bean and Avocado Quesadillas (SO good!) or as a topping for Black Bean and Egg Tostadas (these are not just for breakfast – I love them for lunch and dinner too).

I normally opt for oil and vinegar based salad dressings when it comes to salad, but every now and then I crave a creamy dressing like this, especially since I know it’s full of healthy ingredients like avocado and Greek yogurt. The avocado definitely adds to the creaminess.

This dressing is thick, and full of flavor – it would be a great topping along with some salsa for a healthy taco salad, or a great dip for your veggie plate. I tossed a couple of heaping tablespoons in a big Mexican inspired salad last week and loved it so much. There is no wrong way to enjoy this creamy avocado lime dressing in my opinion. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you are all having a great week!

  1. I am SO like you. Avocados on sale? BY THEM ALL.
    I usually just eat my weight in avocado egg toast, but this dressing is totally my jam. Love that you used Greek yogurt! Pinned ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Okay, the fact your kiddos eat avocados? That’s definitely a MOM WIN! So impressed Momma. Even though my family does not… I LOVE avocados and am pinning this. Looks delicious!!! I love the idea of serving it with veggies…. Would make a great appetizer!

    • thank you friend…it amazes me that Gina and Micah love avocados so much. I didn’t give any to Sammy as a baby…I guess that’s why? ๐Ÿ™‚ This would really make a great figure friendly dip!

  9. I’m never without avocados in my kitchen, either-I can’t get enough of them! When “Everyday Food” was still being published, I found a recipe very similar to this and I made it and loved it. Then, I lost the recipe and couldn’t remember the ratio of ingredients. I’m so glad you created this because it is almost identical to the Everyday Food recipe I loved so much. I’ve printed it and added it to my recipe binder!

    • Oh my gosh, Everyday Food was one of my favorite food magazines. Such simple, straight forward recipes. I still have a box of them!! I hate that it went away. Funny there was a recipe like this in there, I am glad this helped you!!! xo

  10. This dressing will be accompanying my next taco salad! Yum!!

  11. Oh I would eat this all up as a dip in no time!

  12. Oh I just bet this is delicious! Will probably dream about it tonight ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. They had that same deal here! How did you know I have a whole fridge full, just waiting to be turned into this dressing? ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Wow. That dressing looks so green and creamy. This would be a great dip for chips too, I think.

  15. I made this just the other day after reading a recent post where you used this dressing to dress a salad–it is fantastic! I used it as a dip for chips and I couldn’t stop eating it! It has such great flavor with the scallion, lime and cilantro. I printed it out and put it in my recipe binder to make again. This would be great for a big chip, veggie and dip party platter for a summer cook-out.

  16. Delicious dressing recipe for salad
