Cilantro-Lime dressing

By: The Working Girl’s Kitchen

I refuse to buy store-bought salad dressing. Not only is homemade dressing free from all those unpronounceable additives, but it is 100% tastier. Another plus is that the left over rarely goes to waste. I can use it as a marinade or a sauce.

Ingredients:

·         1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped

·         3 cloves of garlic

·         3/4 tsp grated fresh ginger root

·         1 lime, juice

·         1/3 cup honey

·         2 tsp balsamic vinegar

·         1/4 packed fresh cilantro

·         1/2 cup extra, virgin olive oil

·         1/2 tsp salt

Directions:

If you have a Vitamix, throw all ingredients in and blend. If you have a food process or other blender, place the jalapeno pepper, garlic and ginger in first and pulse until finely chopped. Pour in lime juice, honey, salt and cilantro; pulse a few times to blend. Turn the food processor/blender on, and slowly drizzle in the olive oil until fully mixed. Season with additional salt if needed.
