4-Ingredient healthy cilantro salad dressing. Great on salads greens or as a dip. 



  • 1 large bunch of organic cilantro

  • ½ cup lemon juice (3-6 medium lemons)

  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt or more to taste


  1. Wash cilantro thoroughly and pat dry. Add the entire bunch, stems included, to your high speed blender (I use a Vitamix). 
  2. Juice lemons and add to blender along with the sea salt. Measure out olive oil and set aside. 
  3. Blend cilantro, lemon juice and sea salt till pureed. Slowly drizzle in olive oil till fully incorporated. Adjust sea salt to taste. 
  4. Store in an air tight glass jar for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. The vibrant green color will fade after the first day but the dressing is still good & tastes fresh. 


Add 1 whole avocado to this recipe for a creamy salad dressing without any dairy.
