Cilantro Lime Dressing

This salad dressing is full of fresh herby flavor and only requires a handful of ingredients. It is a perfect pairing for green salads, lentils, roasted vegetables, tacos, and more.

One of the many things I have learned since shifting to a plant-based diet is that having a flavorful dressing or dip on hand can seriously increase the amount of vegetables that I eat! I love that this one is full of good for us, healthy ingredients. Not only am I already eating a salad, but topping it with a dressing that is full of extra greens! 

Let's make some!
