We’ve been making our own homemade salad dressings since the beginning of this year. For the last few weeks, I’ve been making this creamy avocado cilantro dressing.

Since I almost always have avocados in my fridge and cilantro in my garden during the summer, this is the perfect summer dressing that I can quickly whip up whenever I need it.

I’ve used it with buddha bowls, rice bowls and salads. It’s creamy, versatile and tastes good with almost everything.

An easy homemade healthy summer dressing that is ready in about 5 minutes.


  • 1 large avocado peeled and pitted
  • 1 cup cilantro leaves and stems
  • 1/2-1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4-1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • juice of one lemon


  1. Add all ingredients into a food processor. I recommend starting with 1/4 cup yogurt, 1/2 tsp garlic powder and juice of half of a lemon. Process until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust as needed, adding more yogurt, garlic powder and lemon juice to taste. If you want a thinner consistency, add a little bit of water as well. Dressing can be stored in fridge 1-2 days.
