Cilantro-Lime Dressing

Throwing together dinner on a Wednesday, I decided to use the leftover cilantro in the salad. I've chopped it up directly in salad before but it just ends up sticking to the bottom of the plate, so I decided to research adding it to a salad dressing.

Surprisingly, there were several recipes available. Several of them were variations on using cilantro and lime juice, so I decided to run with that.

The result easily passed the Meredith test and she asked me when the recipe was going to appear on the blog. I hadn't even thought about it, so I quickly prepared some veggies to drizzle the dressing on for a photo.

  2. This looks and sounds amazing! I feel the same about cilantro in salads; it's delicious when you can actually get it to blend! Thanks for the solution! I'd like to try it as a coating for grilled chicken as well. I think it would be amazing!

  3. ooohh.. I never thought of using it like that. Please tell me how it turns out!
