Homemade Cilantro Lime dressing | suzyandco.com

This is one of my all-time favorite dressings. I love the combination of cilantro and lime. This is a great tangy dressing that is similar to Cafe Rio's Cilantro lime vinaigrette, which I find myself wanting to drink!

Besides only being able to get this dressing at Cafe Rio, similar flavored, store-bought versions have a lot of ingredients including preservatives and flavoring.

Water, Vinegar, Sugar, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Canola Oil, Soybean Oil, Lime Juice Concentrate, Lemon Juice Concentrate, Salt, Contains Less than 2% of Mustard Seed, Onions, Garlic, Spice, Cilantro (Dried), Garlic (Dried), Onions (Dried), Xanthan Gum, Lime Oil, White Wine, Natural Flavoring, Fruit Pectin, Citric Acid, Tartaric Acid, Potassium Sorbate and Calcium Disodium EDTA as Preservatives.
This version is easy to make at home and only has 7 ingredients.

1/2 Tbsp. honey
