Creamy Avocado-Cilantro Dressing {gluten free, soy free, dairy free, vegan}

The heat has really picked up where I'm at, leaving me looking for dinner options that aren't rich, heavy, or, well... hot! Salads fill the need nicely, I think. This dressing is definitely my new favorite. It's rich and creamy, but refreshing at the same time. Perfect for a loaded salad, or for dipping chopped veggies.

1 C. Cilantro {remove the large stems, wash and chop it a bit, and don't worry about packing too firmly}
6 oz. cup of PLAIN coconut yogurt {almond milk yogurt, etc. would also work}
1/4 Cup Oil {grapeseed, olive}
Juice of One Lime
Meat from 1/2 Avocado
1 tsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
Salt and Pepper

To Make:
Combine the ingredients in your food processor or blender, and process thoroughly. You can also use a stick/immersion blender.
Taste the mixture for salt and pepper, and add more to your liking.
The dressing is best served immediately, but it will keep for a few days in your refrigerator if stored in an air-tight container.
