IMG_2578My mouth is watering as I write this post. I wish I still had some of this vinaigrette in the fridge right now but I ate it on nearly every salad or quinoa bowl I had last week. You can keep your cilantro in a jar with water and it will last longer than in a bag where it gets super slimy. This means you can make this vinaigrette again when you realize it’s so good that you need way more to get you through the week. This was amazing on the Southwest Salad I made the other day. It’s also really good on steak! Try it out and let me know what you think.

Serves: ⅔ cup (serves 4-6)

Hands-on time: 5 minutes

  1. Put everything in a food processor and mix until well combined.
  2. Store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
  3. Enjoy!

    This is a great vinaigrette. I used it to make a cabbage slaw for fish tacos. My husband said they were the best fish tacos he has ever eaten. I also did a pico and a guacamole crema.

      Thanks! Yum!! That sounds so delicious. I will have to put it on some tacos. That pico and guacamole crema both sound fire!
