Happy Cinco de Mayo! To top this festive celebration, or at least some Mexican-inspired salads, I have an amazing coconut lime dressing recipe from Erin Bosdet of Simply Dish.
Both healthy and tasty, this coconut lime dressing gets its creamy consistency from a blend of ripe avocado, coconut oil, and unsweetened coconut milk beverage. Just be sure that all of your ingredients are brought to room temperature before blending. Coconut oil solidifies when cooled even a little, so it will firm up and leave little pieces in your creamy concoction if any ingredients are even a little chilled.
This coconut lime dressing recipe is naturally vegan, dairy-free / non-dairy, gluten-free, and soy-free. Enjoy it atop fresh salads all spring and summer long!
- Toss all of the ingredients into a tall mason jar, starting with 1 tablespoon of agave nectar.
- Using a smart stick or hand blender, mix until smooth. Alternately, you can use a blender.
- Taste test, and blend in more agave nectar if desired.
- Drizzle over your salad and enjoy.
