I am blessed to live in the avocado-growing state of California! Although avocados are technically not in season yet, the price is already starting to drop in stores. Come Springtime, avocados will be plentiful and cheap everywhere you go in California. It’s one of my favorite times of year because I love putting avocado in everything from my Bagel Omelet Recipe to my Avocado Chicken Salad. And let’s not forget that delicious Spicy Guacamole. I’m excited to add this Avocado Cilantro Sauce to my growing list of avocado-filled recipes!
Although I dubbed this recipe as an Avocado Cilantro “Sauce,” it can also be used as a dressing or dip. I made this sauce during a popcorn shrimp taco night and it was an amazing addition. But we also used the leftover sauce to dip the extra Popcorn Shrimp in. Another great idea for this Avocado Cilantro Sauce is to top off some grilled chicken with it for a healthy and incredibly tasty meal. Or you can simply add a few extra teaspoons of water and turn it into a creamier salad dressing.
Here’s a link to my Popcorn Shrimp recipe if you’d like to try it out paired with this sauce.
So, go ahead and make a nice large jar of this stuff and keep it on hand whenever the craving hits! It will add pizzazz to almost any meal. 😉
