Cilantro and Lime salad dressing

  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
  • 1/3 cup lime juice (juice of approximately 3 limes)
  • 1/4 cup honey (Adjust honey to taste, so prefer it a bit less sweet)
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/3 cup packed cilantro leaves (you can leave a bit of the stems too)
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil


  1. 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.
