SKINNY CILANTRO LIME DRESSING RECIPE

We just can’t find enough ways to use this sweet and tangy “skinny” cilantro lime dressing. Our simple recipe is like none other: it is the perfect addition to a salad, tastes great as a marinade, you may even mistake it for one of our juices! Made the easy way in a high powered blender such as a Vitamix or Blendtec, this vegan recipe cuts your waistline AND the time it takes to make a delicious homemade dressing recipe! Not only is this low cholesterol recipe tasty, but the team of cilantro, lime and raw honey help to keep your heart healthy and blood clean and oxygenated! Blender Babe Tarashaun tested this recipe with and without avocado and prefers the creamy texture of the avocado-added version. This does add 60 calories and 5 grams of fat to the entire recipe, but only about 1/4 of that ends up on any individual salad, so keep that in mind if you are seeking a “Skinny” recipe!

HEALTH BENEFITS AND FUN FACTS 
Cilantro is rich in antioxidants, essential oils, fiber, and vitamins, helping to reduce LDL cholesterol and simultaneously  increasing HDL or “good cholesterol” levels. A serving of cilantro provides over 200% DRI of Vitamin-A and Vitamin-K, and has been shown to have analgesic, anti-spasmodic and fungicidal properties. Limes have special antioxidants called  flavonol glycosides. These flavonoids have been shown to stop cell division in many cancer cell lines, and have strong antibiotic effects. Raw honey can counter allergies in some sufferers, and is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral. It even has effects comparable to over the counter antibiotic creams when applied to the skin.
