Lime Dressing


The other day I posted a cilantro lime dressing.

Today, I'm posting just a plain 'ol lime dressing.

Perhaps you think I'm stuck on lime things.

I actually think it's just a fluke.

The difference between this one and the other dressing:

I have made this one.

As in just the other day made it.

I really liked it.

My smallest cherub thought that it was "pungent."

She used the word in the sentence correctly and everything.

Then asked what "pungent" meant.

I'm thinking she didn't really mean what she said about the dressing!

I liked this on a salad with grilled chicken, chopped purple onion, and sliced mango.

Then, last night, I made a "Mexican Chicken Pasta Salad" and I used this as the dressing.

I liked that too.

Lime Dressing

1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup canola oil

Whisk together vinegar, sugar, lime juice, garlic, salt, and freshly ground pepper. Gradually whisk in canola oil until smooth.  I used the immersion blender, but you can do it with a whisk or shake it in a jar with a tight fitting lid.
