I first made this simple Cilantro Lime Salad Dressing for Cinco de Mayo a couple years ago after trying something similar at a restaurant that Superhubby and I like for date nights. The Cilantro Lime Salad Dressing is refreshing with a hint of spiciness and sweetness. Often when I buy cilantro at the grocery store, I end up with way too much and this dressing is the perfect way to use up leftover cilantro and make a fabulous salad! Now that I planted cilantro in our garden, I won’t have to worry about using leftover bunches and can make this Cilantro Lime Salad Dressing anytime!
Yumminess Rating: 5 of 5 stars
RA ease of prep: 3 of 5 stars (only because I have a horrible, non RA friendly mini food processor that is impossible to use. There is a lot of chopping of garlic, ginger and removing leaves from cilantro, but this one is worth the time and effort!). In related news, anyone have a good mini food processor to recommend?
Serving suggestion pictured includes the Cilantro Lime Dressing on top of a salad with the following ingredients:

What a delicious salad I made for lunch using leftovers…small victory for me!
