I could eat this tasty salad dressing with a spoon. It has the refreshing tang of lime juice with a hint of sweetness from honey and a touch of cumin to complement the other flavors. Toss it with some salad greens, and you've got an easy side.  I especially like to serve Spicy Grilled Shrimp Skewers on a bed of greens dressed with this. It's so easy to make. Here's how.

The ingredients: honey, olive oil, grapeseed or canola oil (or any preferred mild tasting oil), salt, pepper, cumin, garlic powder, Dijon mustard, and lime juice
