Creamy avocado and fresh zesty lime juice. The result: an avocado cream sauce flexible enough to use for dipping, drizzling, or eating straight off the spoon! Best as an avocado dip, avocado lime dressing for simple salads, or on your favorite protein.
I love having a bright green avocado lime crema to add fresh flavor to any side dish or main course. Better yet is having sauces that take only a few minutes with limited ingredients! Serve this crema with Chili Lime Air Fryer Tortilla Chips!
Eating clean for the past five years, my favorite sauces were those that use simple, fresh ingredients. I’m a huge proponent of making easy recipes that don’t skimp out on taste. Sauces like this one help make any side dish or main taste all the better! I prefer only a few ingredients that pack a huge flavor. For other simple, delicious dressings try Lemon Chive Salad Dressing or Grapefruit Salad Dressing.
