Honey lime salad dressing

July 17, 2012 § 4 Comments

We had friends over recently for lasagne.  The lasagne was good, but even better (according to Dave) was the accompanying salad.  As it happens, it wasn’t the salad, but the SALAD DRESSING that he liked so much.

When I can find a way to get Dave to eat something green, even when it’s just a simple lettuce salad with a little honey lime salad dressing on top of it, then it’s a good day.  Dave is just not that keen for vegetables.  Now that we know this salad dressing is the “best ever,” according to Dave, I’ve whipped up a pint of it, and it’s sitting in our refrigerator to be served with salads, vegetables, and grilled sausage (yes, I did indeed present this to Dave as “dipping sauce” with some smoked grilled sausage we had for dinner recently) .

This dressing is also good with steamed green beans (steam the beans for 3 minutes, then rinse in cold water; pour over a little honey lime salad dressing, and toss).

Dave’s trying to think of a way he can make this salad dressing into a drink.

Honey lime everything dressing

2 tablespoons honey

Juice of 6 key limes (2-3 tablespoons)

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon minced parsley

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/4 cup olive oil

Whisk together ingredients.  Use it for marinating vegetables, as a salad dressing, or as a dipping sauce for sausage or chicken.
