Cilantro Crema Dressing and Dip
Prep time
Total time
Can be used as a salad dressing, a sauce topping for foods like baked potatoes, steak and tacos, or as a dip for chips or fresh vegetables
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped finely
  • 1 cup Mexican crema (see note below for details)
  • ½ cup avocado or olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • 2 garlic cloves, through a garlic press
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  1. Mix everything together and your done!
  2. The dressing is on the thicker side, but it still works great on salad!
Try to find crema Mexicana that is listed simply as "table cream." Sometimes crema Mexicana will be labeled "agria," or sour cream. While sour crema is still delicious, we like the dressing better when made with the plain, non-sour crema.
