Photo by: Joseph De Leo
Comments: 0


This dressing is particularly good on spinach and red onion salad or any combination of greens.

Yield: ½ cup (enough for 1 4-serving salad)
Prep time: 5 Minutes


  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (1 or 2 limes)
  • 1 tablespoon honey, preferably desert blossom
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
  • ½ fresh jalapeno, minced
  • Pinch of salt (optional)




Combine the lime juice, honey, cilantro, and jalapeño. Whisk until well blended (see Notes).

Taste and adjust the seasonings, adding salt, if needed.


If you have a mini-chopper, use it to mince the jalapeño and combine all the ingredients.
