With the chilly weather, tropical flavors probably aren’t top of mind. Recently though, I was in a restaurant and my rice and bean bowl came with a side of cilantro lime dressing that took this comfort dish to another level.
The Savory Vegan nailed it with this recipe for Simple Cilantro Lime Dressing. In a blender or food processor, pulse one bunch of cilantro, juice from one lime, half an avocado, a garlic clove, ¼ cup of olive oil and salt to taste. Toss with pasta, drizzle over rice and beans or pack it with a salad.
