If a dressing could change your salad life, I would volunteer my new Homemade Honey, Lime & Garlic Avocado Dressing as a candidate. More and more I find myself trying out new homemade dressings, if only because store bought ones (with the exception of Renee’s, I quite like those) gross me out almost all the time. Once you start making your own, I swear to the good Lord above, you seriously can taste the “fakeness” in store bought dressings.

This is not a low fat salad dressing, it’s a healthy fats salad dressing. Olive oil and avocados are combined with fresh garlic, fresh lime juice, honey and cilantro, making this a seriously amazing dressing.

Every single one of the ingredients in this dressing is a health super-food. If you look up each one, they are a nutritional powerhouse in their own way.

    This was great. I made it with extra garlic and maple syrup to make it vegan.5 stars

  2. Amanda says

    Did the question about the glitch for the Garlic oil ever get answered? I don’t see it. If someone knows can you please let me know the correct amount? Thanks.

  3. Gayle says

    There is a glitch in the way the recipe displays.

    Is that one half a cup of olive oil?

    • Kim Webb says

      Ditto on the “glitch” for the garlic oil! I’m a new cook and can’t guess the measurement, so if anyone knows the answer (how much), please comment!

  4. Redawna says

    Oh my!!! This sounds fantastic! I’ll be making it minus the cilantro. I am one of those people who just can’t enjoy cilantro, to me it smells and tastes like dirt. Can’t wait to try this.
