Prep time
Total time
A creamy, zingy, versatile sauce or salad dressing made from 6 simple ingredients. Flavorful, healthy, and ready in just 5 minutes!
Recipe type: Salad Dressing
Cuisine: Low FODMAP, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Paleo, Vegan, Low Sugar
Serves: ~1 cup
  • 1 medium avocado*, pitted
  • 3 Tablespoons lime juice (~1 medium lime / or use less if you aren't into zing)
  • 1 tsp pure maple syrup (more or less to taste)
  • ½ cup loosely packed fresh cilantro
  • 1 dash sea salt (plus more to taste)
  • ⅓-1/2 cup water (plus more as needed to thin)
  1. Add all ingredients to a small blender** (such as a magic bullet), starting with just ⅓ cup water. Blend until creamy, adding more water (as needed) to thin to desired consistency (I used an additional ~3 Tablespoons).
  2. Serve over a salad, bowl, or your favorite creation! For a low FODMAP serving idea, try lettuce, sliced red bell pepper, diced cherry tomatoes, and corn cut off the cob (if tolerated / microwave corn on the cob for ~2-3 minutes, flipping half way through, then remove husk and cut from cob). For those who want to try high FODMAP additions, finely diced red onion and black beans are delicious!
*According to Monash University, avocado is low FODMAP at a serving size of 30 grams or ~1/8 whole avocado. This recipe makes ~1 cup dressing. Therefore, a 2 Tablespoon serving size of this dressing is low FODMAP.
**A small blender works best in this recipe, but a food processor might work. If you only have a larger blender such as a Vitamix, I would recommend doubling the recipe so that the dressing rests comfortably over the blades and blends fully.
