Well, IF you can help it!
This recipe I found at allrecipes.com is flat out the best dressing I’ve had in a long while… I decided to try it because it had the 3 ingredients I wanted to use AND there were 175 5-star votes!
We think it would also make a delicious marinade for fish you are going to grill.
You must make it!
We substituted lemon for the lime and actually liked it better. Other changes were that we used our vitamix, and for the ginger, we used 1 ginger paste glob (you vitamix your fresh ginger root, unpeeled, and freeze in teaspoon size globs on cookie sheet, then store in freezer bag for fresh ginger anytime).
We used all organic ingredients
Organic Cilantro-Lemon Ginger Salad Dressing, serves 12
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped (if using a vitamix, just toss in the pepper)
1 clove garlic
3/4 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
1/4 cup lime juice (lemon tastes great)
1/3 cup honey
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/4 cup packed cilantro leaves
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Place the jalapeno pepper, garlic clove, and ginger into a food processor or blender; pulse until the jalapeno and garlic are finely chopped. Pour in the lime juice, honey, balsamic vinegar, and salt, add the cilantro leaves; pulse a few times to blend. Turn the food processor or blender on, and slowly drizzle in the olive oil until incorporated into the dressing. Season to taste with salt before serving.
Using a vitamix, you would use your tamper while blending.
Please tell me if you use this recipe and if you agree that it is on the top of your homemade dressings list!
