  • This easy keto dressing recipe is loaded with nutrition with healthy fats and is lower in calories than most creamy bottled dressings.
  • Multi-purpose, this dressing is excellent on a crispy low-carb green salad, but can also be stirred into a cold quinoa salad or into zoodles with some chopped tomatoes (and corn if a few extra carbs don’t worry you).
  • Use it as a dip for chicken taco bites or as a sauce over air fryer salmon. Scoop some into a low-carb wrap for a delicious and protein-packed workday lunch!

Ingredients and Variations

Avocados – Choose avocados that are free of blemishes and just a little bit soft when you squeeze them. Once avocadoes are ripe they can be stored in the refrigerator to keep them fresh for longer.

Cilantro – Not everyone enjoys the flavor of cilantro, so feel free to switch out for basil, but this will change the flavor profile, giving it a zesty pesto vibe!

Lime Juice – Switch out for lemon juice if lime juice isn’t available, but you may want to add a little bit of keto honey if the dressing is too tart.

Variations – For a thicker, creamier dressing, whisk in some ranch dressing which will make it the perfect texture for a dip! Add some taco seasoning for a zestier dressing!

How to Make Avocado Lime Dressing

  1. Blend all ingredients in a blender until creamy.
  2. Adjust seasonings, if necessary.

Pro Tip:

Are avocados not quite ripe? Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, and wrap each half in plastic wrap. Microwave on high for two minutes and let cool before using.

Storing Avocado Lime Dressing

Keep leftover dressing in a cruet or jar with a tight-fitting lid in the refrigerator. Due to the addition of fresh garlic, the potential for botulism to form in the dressing dictates that it should be used within 3 days. Or you can simply use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic.
