There are a million nice things to say about this cilantro lime vinaigrette recipe. It’s a light dressing with champagne that comes together in 5 minutes. Use cilantro lime dressing for salads, to marinate grilled chicken or shrimp, or to slather on crusty bread. Let’s grab some garlic, cilantro and a whisk and make this easy dressing recipe happen!
Add olive oil and minced garlic to a small pan on the stove on medium heat. Cook, stirring regularly for 1-2 minutes. When garlic is translucent, and before it browns, take the garlic off the heat and set it aside to cool.
In a bowl, add the garlic olive oil, lime juice, champagne vinegar, chili powder, chipotle powder, salt, pepper, to a bowl. Whisk together to blend completely, add fresh chopped cilantro, then whisk together one last time.
● Garlic - My preference as you’ll see in the cilantro lime dressing recipe is to roast the garlic. Roasted garlic is more mellow and is so quick to make. Raw garlic can be overpowering.
● Garlic powder - Substitute ¼ tsp - ½ tsp garlic powder instead of roasted garlic.
● Usually, I’ll leave this dressing on the counter for a couple of days. If it’s stored in the fridge, the olive oil will probably harden so you’ll need to take it out of the fridge about 30-60 minutes before dressing your food.
