Cilantro Lime Dressing

When I was a kid I don’t think it even occurred to me that one could make their own salad dressing, to me it was just an item in the grocery store that came bottled; it would be like making your own mustard as far as I was concerned. I have since converted my mind set to one where I rarely buy salad dressing because it’s so darn easy to make and customize and it doesn’t include gums and emulsifiers as the store bought ones do.

This particular dressing was designed to top my Southwest Chicken Bowls but it would be great on any salad that has a Tex Mex or Southwest theme.

For the Cilantro Lime Dressing

Serves 6-8

10g Green onions, chopped

20g Fresh Cilantro

20g Lime Juice (bottled is fine)

250g Sour Cream or Greek Yogurt (not low fat)

4g Cumin, ground

2g Kosher or Sea Salt

2g Black Pepper, freshly ground

4g Fresh Garlic, minced

4g Honey

Build this dressing in a bullet style blender, it’ll come together in less than 5 minutes. If you don’t have a blender, chop or mince everything very fine and whisk by hand.
