One of my favorite local restaurants serves a cilantro lime vinagrette salad dressing. I love it on my chicken fajita salad and decided to recreate it at home.
This is really easy to make and it is delicious! This cilantro-lime dressing is great served over a garden salad, fajita salad, or on a cabbage slaw. I love to pair this up with mexican food!
This recipe calls for a jalapeno, don’t worry, it doesn’t turn out spicy. My kids love it and they are super sensitive to spicy foods!
Here is what you need:
1 medium to small jalepeno pepper, seeded, and coarsely chopped, 2 cloves of garlic, 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root, 1/4 cup lime juice, 1/3 cup honey, 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Here is what you do:
Place all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Mix for about 2 minutes. I like to chill mine in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving.
