Homemade Honey, Lime & Garlic Avocado Dressing

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.

What I love the most about this dressing is that it’s dairy free, vegan (if you are a vegan that eats honey, this is a blurry line in veganism) and healthy as heck for my kids to use as a dip!

As with everything, you can adjust the ingredients to your liking.

Love garlic? Throw in another clove. Want it sweeter? Add some honey. Play around until you get a dressing that you like!

I taunted you all with this picture of my lunch last week and yes, that’s my avocado dressing right on top! This is a copycat salad and I will be writing up the recipe ASAP for you all!

It was mind-blowingly awesome,  you guys and so easy to make!

This makes quite a bit of dressing, so if you aren’t going to use it within 3-5 days, then I would make half the batch.

Oh! The other amazing thing about this dressing?

Take a gander at the color of the dressing in the photos.

That dressing is 4 days old now. Notice how brightly green it is?

Yup. You can make this dressing ahead of time, which is almost unheard of with an avocado based salad dressing. The lime juice keeps it gorgeously fresh and green!

I hope you enjoy this recipe and give it a whirl! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. There is a glitch in the way the recipe displays.

    Is that one half a cup of olive oil?

    • 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!

  2. 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.
