Looking for a delicious sauce to pour over fish tacos or simply dip with a chip? Make my dairy-free/ gluten-free blender Creamy Cilantro Dressing in minutes!
I came up with this easy recipe for blender Creamy Cilantro Dressing a few years ago when I was on a dairy-free diet while breastfeeding my dairy-intolerant new born baby! Even after reintroducing dairy back in my life, I loved this dressing so much that I still continue to make this recipe to this day. Still to this day, I love to slather this dressing on fish tacos or eat with tortilla chips.
I rarely let friends watch me make this because the looks they give me when they see me put mayonnaise in a blender is repulsive. They then second guess me and ask if this will really taste good. I always assure them this will be the best sauce they’ve ever had. After just one bite they can’t believe how delicious the sauce is and apologize for doubting me!
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Lime Juice
In a blender, combine the mayonnaise, cilantro, cumin, garlic, apple cider vinegar, lime juice, water, and salt.
Blend for 30 seconds or until smooth and creamy.
The answer is no. Technically, you do not need a blender. However, I like the cilantro to be pureed and in order to do this it needs to be put into a blender. I’ve made this while on vacation at a rental property that had a basic blender and it worked just fine. Just needed a little bit more time to puree. I also had to stop and use a silicone spatula to push around.
If you don’t own a blender you can use a food processor for this dressing. Just keep in mind you might need to continue to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
Here are just a few ways I love to use this addictive Mexican dressing.
– Cilantro lime dressing for fish tacos (this is the main way we use this dressing)
– Poured on top of a salad
– Drizzled on grilled chicken
– Use as a dip with chips
