This vegan avocado cilantro dressing recipe is creamy and healthy.  Learn how to make this simple 5 minute dressing that's made with cilantro, avocado, limes, and jalapenos.  Plus, it's dairy free and keto friendly!


  • 1 bunch cilantro, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup avocado, from one ripe avocado (102g)
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (60 ml)
  • 3 tablespoons jalapeno, chopped (20g)
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 3 tablespoons garlic
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey (21g) or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil


  1. Pulse the bunch of cilantro, with the stems and leaves, in a food processor until chopped.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients, except the oil, and pulse until smooth.  Use a spatula to scrape down the sides.
  3. With the blade running, slowing pour in the olive oil to help emulsify the dressing.
  4. Pour the dressing into a mason jar, screw on the lid tightly, and refrigerate for up to 5 days.


  • Don't substitute fresh cilantro for dried.  The taste will change drastically because the fresh cilantro adds a bright flavor.
  • Add one tablespoon of water at at time to get the consistency you want.
