Cilantro Avocado Dressing

I’ve been holding this one back for quite awhile now……..don’t be mad. It’s worth the wait trust me. I’m addicted to making my own dressings! This Cilantro Avocado Dressing is healthy and delicious! I loved it even more when I knew how guiltless it was!! OK no more holding back here we go! I don’t think I’ll ever buy another bottle of dressing again. Stay tuned I have two more homemade ones coming your way at the end of the month.
