Honey Lime Dressing

This dressing is delicious on a salad or used as a marinade for seafood.  Just remember that the acidity of the lime will cook the seafood, so marinate the fish for no longer than 15 minutes in the fridge.  You won’t find a bottled dressing that tastes quite as good as this vinaigrette and you’ll be surprised how quickly you can whip it up.  On top of that, limes have important vitamins and antioxidants, which among other things, can maintain heart health and improve the condition of your skin.  This dressing will keep well in the fridge for a up to 4 days.

Prep Time:  10 minutes                          Serves: 4

Ingredients

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

2 tsp grated lime peel

1/2 cup olive oil

1 1/2 tbsp honey

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Place all of the ingredients except for the olive oil in a small food processor.  As the food processor is blending, gradually add in the olive oil until combined.  The dressing will be white in color and the oil will be incorporated into the other ingredients.
