Craving limes?

Tomato-Cilantro Vinaigrette
Adapted from MyRecipes

  • 1/2 c chopped tomato, seeded
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped (seeded if you do not like too much heat) or try a sprinkle of cayenne
  • 1/2 c fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 3-4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1-1.5 Tbsp Cider Vinegar
  • 2 tsp lime zest, grated (I like lime so I use 1 Tbsp)
  • 1.5 Tbsp fresh lime juice (again, I love lime but Dane told me that 2 Tbsp was too much so I'm willing to compromise)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Mix the above ingredients in a blender or food processor,  process until smooth. We served over fresh greens topped with grilled peppers, fresh tomatoes, cilantro, avocado, olives and tortilla chips.
