Honey, Lime and Garlic Vinaigrette

Honey, Lime and Garlic Vinaigrette | @AggiesKitchen

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to get back in the salad again. Although soup really is one of my favorite ways to fill up (any time of the year), salads are high up on the list as well (if you’ve been reading my blog for a while then you probably know that by now!).

Obviously fresh salad ingredients are important when getting back into the salad making mood. For me, the salad dressing is equally important. Although I do occasionally pick up a bottle of dressing from the store,  I find that I am more into eating salads when I make my own dressing at home. It tastes better that’s for sure and once you get back into the habit of making them, they truly are simple as can be.

I received a box of incredible Honeybells from Harry & David a couple of weeks ago. With their boxes of fruit they always include a recipe card and with this particular box they included a recipe for a spinach salad using their oranges that was dressed with a lime vinaigrette. This simple Honey, Lime and Garlic Vinaigrette was inspired by that recipe card – along with the fact that I had all the ingredients on hand. (no excuses, right?)

This homemade citrusy vinaigrette is guaranteed to get you back into the salad making mood again, it really will. And if you are in a part of the country that is still cold and covered in snow, I promise it will brighten up any winter blues that might be starting to settle in.

Enjoy!

    This sounds just fantastic, and I’m totally with you on the salad thing. It’s definitely time!

    I follow Genotype Teacher Diet and my son follows Blood Type A Diet: this vinaigrette fits both of us to a “T”. A suggestion: when I crave a creamy dressing, I add lemon vinaigrette to some Greek yogurt. Your lime vinaigrette would work, too.
