Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette

We had some leftover limes from when I made the Florida Pie for TWD last week. I didn’t know what to do with them until I came across this recipe for Cilantre-Lime Vinaigrette as posted at EatingWell.com.

We used some of it to top a salad I made with romaine lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, garbanzo beans, corn, peas, beets and parmasean cheese. It’s delicious and very refreshing.

Not bad for my first try at salad dressing, I must say!

  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
