6 Ingredient Healthy Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing recipe / Running in a Skirt

Hi peeps!

There is something about avocado and lime that is just so dreamy together.  Perhaps it goes back to my long-standing love of all things guacamole based?  I honestly could and have to go through an entire recipe of guacamole on my own.  It’s a borderline obsession.  Please tell me I’m not the only one!?

Well, in my effort to get that guacamole flavor without eating a whole bag of chips… I turned that classic guac flavor into a salad dressing!  My Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing that is simply inspired by this dream team combination.

Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing

The base is of course avocado, cilantro, and lime!  To make it creamy I added my favorite secret ingredient… greek yogurt.  The greek yogurt makes it creamy and adds a little protein to your dressing.   And as a mainly vegetarian, I am always looking for new ways to add protein to my diet.

Don’t you just want to make a taco salad and eat this up!??  How about trying my Vegetarian Taco Salad

Just sayyyyiinnn…

This is also quite lovely on a big batch of curly kale!  Massage it into the greens and allow to sit for a few hours before serving.

Then come back and tell me how much you love it?!  K?

Sadly, this Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing doesn’t keep as well in the fridge because of the avocado but even if the color turns a bit, it still tastes good.

But honestly it’s so scrumptious, you’ll want to polish off the whole batch.

I used to think I had to buy a bottle of dressing to make a salad, but once I figured out how much more delicious and healthy it was to make my own… I’ve been on a kick!  This Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing is no exception… healthy, homemade and absolutely addictive!

    I LOVE this dressing! So yummy and the perfect topping for a burrito bowl, tacos, fish, and salad! Also amazing as a dip for chips or fresh veggies. It kind of reminds me of the avocado lime dressing at Chik-fil-a but so much fresher (and healthier). Thanks so much!!

    Oooh yes please! Especially over your taco salad =)
    I’m always so lazy with dressings. Just a touch of olive oil and a sprits of fresh lemon juice, I think this would really jazz a salad up though. And like you, help me not to eat an entire bag of corn chips haha.

      haha… I’m with you on that I could devour a bag of chips and jar of salsa!
