Lime Vinaigrette



  1. In a small bowl, mix together minced garlic, lime juice, vinegar, and spices.
  2. Let stand for 10 minutes. This will bring out the full flavor of the garlic.
  3. Slowly pour olive oil into the bowl; whisking as you pour. This method will allow the ingredients to mesh together and make a smooth, well-incorporated salad dressing.
  4. Serve.


Serving a mixed greens salad with a meal featuring Southwestern flavors? Use this dressing to compliment the meal.

I like to make up a bowl of mixed greens and toss in this dressing. I fry up a white fish fillet and serve on top of the greens.

This is enough dressing for one head of lettuce. I use olive oil but you could substitute your favorite vegetable based oil, like safflower oil.

Croutons are a really nice compliment to this dressing.
