  1. This avocado cream is absolutely fantastic! We tried it with the stuffed poblano peppers recipe (also 5 stars) and look forward to trying out this sauce on other dishes as well.

  2. Wow, thank you, Sylvia! Your dressing is just what the doctor ordered!
    I was looking for an oil-free, plant-based dressing that included my
    favorite flavors of cilantro, lime and avocado, and your recipe delivered
    Tangy, flavorful and delicious! The coriander is a surprise and delightful
    addition.

  3. This is insanely delicious!

    We are blessed with an abundance of avocados now and wonder if this freezes?
