Honey Lime Vinaigrette

Jump to Recipe

I have moved to making all of my own dressings recently. Mostly it’s because I don’t want all the junk that they put in it to make it able to sit on a shelf for months. But also it is because you can really taste the difference in using fresh ingredients versus additives. Which is especially apparent in this Honey Lime Vinaigrette – the fresh lime juice and zest is what truly sells this dressing.

I just use a Mason Jar in pint size to make my dressings – mostly because I have a bunch that we use for cups. You can certainly use a Salad Dressing Cruet to shake it up – but those lids scare me a little to be honest. With the mason jar, I know the lid is really secure and I can shake it to my heart’s content to make sure it’s mixed all the way.

I, specifically, used this dressing for a Honey Lime Pasta Salad that I made. The corn and onions pair perfectly with the brightness of this dressing. But it would be so good on a Southwest or Tex-Mex salad. It would also be delicious with tacos or quesadillas too.
