Author Notes:

  • This can be used for salads, tacos, quesadillas, on nachos, or as a dip for your veggies.
  • Keep in mind, if you want it more of a chunky sauce-blend it less. If you want it thin for a dressing-blend it longer. The dressing will be more of a greener color the more it is puréed.

When i made it it was all green how did you maintain the white color?

Hi Michelle,

The cilantro gives the dressing that green color-so depending how much you blend it-will determine the color. If I am using this as a sauce or dip- I don't puree it much-which gives it more of a lighter color. If you are planning on using it for a dressing you'll want it smoother and more pureed-which will be more greener than what is pictured. The taste is the same regardless of the color.

Hope that helps! Have a great day
