One of the challenges of the paleo diet is finding acceptable condiments in the grocery store. Most are loaded with sugar, artificial junk, unhealthy oils or some less than acceptable combination of the three. Making your own dressings is the best way to ensure a delicious, quality product. While I am a fan of the easy, no-prep required olive oil and lemon or balsamic vinegar, sometimes I crave a little more excitement on my salads. This Avocado-Cilantro Salad Dressing adds a creamy, fresh, southwestern flavor to a grilled chicken or salmon salad.

Blend the avocado, cilantro, olive oil, water, and salt in a food processor. Add the juice of 1 lime. Blend well until smooth.

Serve over a generous serving of your favorite green leafys, topped with tomatoes, bell peppers and grilled chicken or salmon.

Note: Don’t throw out the avocado seed. If you do not use all of the dressing immediately, store refrigerated in an airtight container with the avocado seed to help keep it fresh.


  • 1 Avocado
  • 1/3 cup Loosely Packed Cilantro Leaves
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1 Lime
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
