Cilantro + Lime Yogurt Dressing

I know, many of you aren’t for the super-involved, step-after-step recipes during the summer months, and I’m there with you! This creamy cilantro + yogurt dressing is one of a few of my quick, go-to dressings when I feel like whipping up a quick salad or protein + grain bowl. In 10 minutes, you’ll have a v tasty and well-rounded dressing you’ll probably make on repeat.

Pictured is a chicken + black bean + roasted corn salad that goes well with the creamy cilantro + lime dressing. I’ll share the list of salad ingredients below for ya!

You Need

  • 1 bunch cilantro, leaves only
  • 1 small shallot, peeled
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt

Do It

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until you reach your desired consistency. Texture should be thick.

With a quick zip of the blender, this goodness is ready to pour on just about anything. But, as I say with a few of my recipes, some foods taste better with time. So if you can, whip this up in the morning and visit it again at lunch or dinner, you'll notice a difference in taste–enjoy!
