Lime Vinaigrette

Another one worth keeping from the Lemonade cookbook. This one is paired with an avocado & cherry tomato salad, but we found that the dressing was the take-away here.

Lime Vinaigrette

Yield: 1 cup


  • 2 to 3 Limes (juice of - about 1/4 cup)
  • 1 tbsp Honey or agave nectar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove Garlic (minced)
  • 1 tsp Coarse salt
  • 1 tsp Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2/3 cup Canola Oil
  • 3 tbsp Chopped fresh cilantro leaves


  1. In a blender (or using an immersion blender), combine the lime juice, honey, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper. Blend on medium speed for a few seconds and reduce speed to low. With the motor running, slowly add the oil until emulsified. Pour into a container or jar and mix in the cilantro.
