People seem to have a love or hate relationship with cilantro. Personally, I find more people love this cilantro dressing than dislike it. The flavors of fresh cilantro and lime pair perfectly with a Southwest Salad topped with avocado, black beans and corn like the one we just made at our Inspira Health Network healthy cooking class on Summer Salads.
Yields 9 one-ounce servings
Juice of 3 limes
1 cup Cilantro, lightly packed
1/2 cup plain low fat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup olive oil
1 small garlic clove, peeled
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/8 teaspoon salt
Putting it all together
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Mix until well blended. Pour into a serving container - I like to use a jelly jar. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
