Cilantro-Lime Avocado Dip (Paleo, Autoimmune Protocol, Whole30)

This avocado dip is from my Salmon Cake post. See Salmon/Crab cake post here.

Cilantro-Lime Avocado Dip (Paleo, Autoimmune Protocol, Whole30)

 I like to serve my crab cakes with some kind of sauce. I don't really like tartar sauce, so I wanted to make something like a remoulade or aioli. No mayo? No problem. Avocado saves the day again. Can you tell how much I looooove avocado? As for the cilantro, I love that too. And since I threw some seeds in the ground, not expecting much, my tiny garden is overflowing with cilantro.

Cilantro Lime Avocado Dip (egg-free, AIP) 

What you need:

1 avocado*
1 tbsp lime juice (more to taste)
handful cilantro (about 2 tbsp minced or to taste)
1/2 tsp minced garlic (1 small or 1/2 large clove OR 1/4 tsp garlic powder)
2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste (omit pepper for AIP)

How to make:

Add all ingredients except olive oil to a small food processor and blend until smooth. I use about 1/4 tsp salt. Slowly add olive oil and pulse until you reach desired consistency and taste. (I used 2 tbsp.)

*3/4 avocado okay if making the salmon cakes.
