: Condiment
Serves: 12 oz
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 bunch of cilantro, washed with larger stems removed
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • up to ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2-4 tablespoons raw honey, or more for a sweeter dressing (depending on how sour your limes are, or how sweet your tooth is)
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • Water, depending on desired consistency ~ you may not need any at all, you may need about 1-4 tablespoons (roughly ¼ cup).
  • kosher or sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste (about ½ - 1 teaspoon each)
  1. Throw all ingredients, except olive oil, into a food processor and pulse until combined. Drizzle in olive oil slowly to emulsify. Check the flavor and add water, olive oil and honey to consistency and sweetness desired.
