This makes about a 3/4 cup of dressing. ¬†We doubled the recipe and had plenty for four large salads and some leftovers. There are many of these recipes floating around out there. I really don’t like mayonnaise, wait, I hate it! so I needed a recipe that didn’t contain it. The results were a creamy, limey, cilantro goodness. A must try! This Cilantro Lime Salad Dressing will not disappoint. What you need: 1 cup of loosely packed, roughly chopped, cilantro (with stems removed) 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt 3 Tbsp sour cream 3 Tbsp fresh lime juice (about 1 small lime) 1-2 cloves of garlic 1/4 cup of olive oil 1.5 tsp white vinegar 1/8 tsp salt What you do: Put all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth.

This dressing is sweetened with maple syrup as it is a clean dressing, but I have used honey before and it was great. What you need: 3 Tbsp plain hummus 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar 3 Tbsp orange juice 1 tsp mustard 1 tsp maple syrup 1/2 tsp fresh ginger (grated with a micro-plane) What you do: Whisk all of the ingredients together in a bowl and you’re ready to serve over the salad of your choice!
