Monica's favorite
salad-making gear
I have several of these versatile little pitchers that I use for serving condiments, sauce, gravy, syrup, & salad dressing.
My smoothie blender works great for quickly mixing this vinaigrette.
These are convenient for making salad dressings because you can measure, mix, store, and serve from the same container.
After owning 2 other kinds, this is hands-down the best for washing and drying salad greens and herbs.
Tried many kinds, but this one remains my favorite.
This is a delicious addition to this vinaigrette.
A hint of cumin is the perfect complement to the other flavors in this vinaigrette.

Honey Lime Vinaigrette

A tangy, slightly sweet dressing for salad greens

This is the salad dressing I mentioned in my last post about Spicy Grilled Shrimp Skewers. It has the refreshing tang of lime juice with a hint of sweetness from honey. There's also a touch of cumin that complements the other flavors.

The ingredients: honey, olive oil, canola oil, salt, pepper, cumin, garlic powder, Dijon mustard, and lime juice

3 easy ways to mix the dressing:

  • In a blender (this is the way I make it). Blend everything but the 2 oils. With the blender running, pour in the oils in a thin stream through the hole in the blender lid. Blend until well mixed.
  • In a bowl. Whisk together everything but the 2 oils. Continue whisking while adding the oils in a thin stream. Keep whisking until well combined.
  • In a jar. Add everything but the 2 oils to the jar. Cover and shake to combine. Add the 2 oils and shake vigorously until well combined.
