Cilantro Lime Dressing


lime cilantro salad dressing 2 of 2

So I’ll be honest here- usually when I make my own salad dressing, I go with my tried and true balsamic vinaigrette. When I try to branch out, I just wish I stuck with my balsamic. However, after many, many salads throughout this summer, I felt I really needed to find a couple of other alternatives to switch it up.

This dressing is perfect for a side salad with any Mexican flavored dish, like the barbacoa I made recently! You can also throw a few tablespoons into the pan when sauteeing veggies for a quick boost of flavor. I tried this when sauteing same zucchini, carrots, and spinach and it was super yummy!
