Keto Avocado Dressing
- 1 large avocado
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 2 handfuls fresh cilantro leaves

- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons water
Serve this dressing over any salad; even an avocado salad!
TIP: You can use pre-squeezed lime, but if you want to get juice right from the lime itself, make sure you have a squeezer.
Can you substitute sour cream?
I don’t know why you would want to since sour cream provides such a rich base, but if you need to substitute, try unflavored Greek yogurt.

How to make Avocado Cilantro Dressing
Place avocado, garlic, cilantro, sour cream, juice of lime, olive oil, salt and pepper into a food processor and process for 10 seconds.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and process for another 10 seconds.
The mixture will be too thick to pour.
Now you can stop right here if you want to use this as an avocado sauce, it’s a great recipe with healthy fats to compliment all the flavors that burst in a salad.
If you want it to be a dressing, keep going!
Add water, starting with 1/4 cup and processing for 5 seconds.
If dressing is still too thick, add additional 2 tablespoons of water and process until mixed well, smooth, and pours easily.
Store covered in the refrigerator.
Remember that avocado turns brown when left in the air, so your dressing can turn brown at the top if not properly sealed. A Mason jar is a great way to create and store home made dressings!
This does not affect flavor.
