Delicious uses for Cilantro Lime Dressing
What is this cilantro lime dressing good paired with? It's great with Mexican dishes. Drizzle it over Mexican rice, use it as the sauce for fajitas, or on tacos! It's the perfect Cilantro Lime Dressing for tacos!
It's also delicious paired with Puerto Rican papas rellenas (delicious deep fried potato balls) or empanadas!
I really love pairing this on my breakfast hashes. Put it on eggs too!
Speaking of eggs, this would also work so well for deviled eggs.
Use it to dress salads, top burgers, or dip fries in!
Ingredients for Vegan Cilantro Lime Dressing
There's not many ingredients, making this dressing nice and simple!
I usually make my two ingredient mayonnaise for the base. It's Whole30 compatible and Keto friendly!
However, it does have egg in it. If you want a vegan cilantro lime dressing, simply use a vegan mayo instead! Then you have a plant based cilantro lime dressing.

Questions and Tips for Cilantro Lime Dressing
If you don't have an immersion blender, you can make this in a regular high speed blender. The only difference you'll need to add more oil, I recommend avocado oil, and keep pausing to push it all down.
When choosing "half a bunch of cilantro", it's basically a large handful. If your bunch is thin, you may want to use the entire bunch. Check out the picture to get an idea of the size.
