Creamy Coconut Lime Dressing


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 spring and summer-friendly 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.

For paleo coconut lime dressing, use 3 tablespoons full-fat coconut milk (like Culinary Coconut Milk) + 1/3 cup water in place of the coconut milk beverage.
