  • 2 cups packed cilantro leaves
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil or other neutral-tasting oil
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 3/4 tsp. kosher salt


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl of a food processor. Pulse until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Serve immediately or store covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
