Love Cilantro? YOU WILL LOVE THIS.



I adore salad. Classic dietitian line, I know. As you may have seen in a previous post, I love to make my own dressing. I enjoy choosing the oil, being in control of the flavors, the salt. It's really fun to me to throw a bunch of ingredients together to create a magic when added to a pile of plants.


I have a bit of an obsession with cilantro. I cannot get enough. It's a regular on my grocery list and I buy it weekly, whether or not I have a plan for it. I will find a way. Sort of like our good friend, Dr. Ian Malcolm says in Jurassic Park, "life finds a way". Yeah, cilantro finds a way for me.


So - that said, sometimes I want a creamy dressing, something with a little bit of a bite and a tang, loads of fresh herbaciousness and the cooling factor of my creamy component: greek yogurt.


So, without further adieu, I give you my newest creation:


Ingredients:


1/3 poblano pepper

5 peeled garlic cloves

1 cup of fresh cilantro (stems included)

1/4 cup of FRESHLY squeezed lime juice

7oz. plain, greek yogurt (I used a 7oz cup of 5% Fage plain Greek)

1/2 cup avocado oil

3/4 tsp kosher salt

1/4 tsp black pepper


Directions: Super simple. Combine all ingredients in a blender, such as a Vitamix or a Ninja and blend until smooth.


DONE!


If you like cilantro, make this ASAP - it changes everything for me. I put it on so much! It lasts in the fridge in a jar for about a week or so!


Enjoy and let me know how you like my newest form of #lettucegravy !
