Light and Not Over-Powering: Honey-Lime Dressing
My first taste of Honey-Lime Dressing was when I ordered a Caribbean Salad at Chilis Restaurant. It was creamy and dreamy with a hint of the islands.
So, when I wanted to make my own recipe, I was stumped. I had tried a number of other recipes offered online but none offered the freshness of lime with the smoothness of honey that I was looking for.
Back to the drawing board and after a number of unsuccessful attempts, I finally hit the mark with this super simple version that I hope will become your favorite go-to dressing as it is mine.
The ingredients are kept to a minimum but if you need more dressing, just double the recipe in equal amounts. It’s that simple.
As mentioned above, I have used this recipe to dress salads, but I’ve also used it as a marinade for pork, chicken and seafood (think shrimp, scallops, and fish). You can even drizzle it on your meat dishes at the last moment before serving to give it a refreshing punch of flavor.
And, if you really want to wow your guests, offer it as a dressing for your favorite salad recipe. I did and my family went bonkers over the taste. Perfect too for summer grilling and picnics.
