lime cilantro shrimp salad

cilantro lime dressing

jalapeno pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped
clove garlic
3/4 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
1/4 cup lime juice
1/3 cup honey
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
salt to taste
1/4 cup packed cilantro leaves
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Place the jalapeno pepper, garlic clove, and ginger into a food processor or blender; pulse until the jalapeno and garlic are finely chopped. Pour in the lime juice, honey, balsamic vinegar, and salt, add the cilantro leaves; pulse a few times to blend. Turn the food processor or blender on, and slowly drizzle in the olive oil until incorporated into the dressing. Season to taste with salt before serving.


  1. Jain, this is my kind of salad. It's grey and rainy here today. A bit of unusual occasion for us. '-) I'm taking advantage of the day to curl up on the sofa and visit some favorite blogs. Hope you are having a great day.

  2. Oh so beautiful, bountiful and fresh! That dressing sounds wonderful!
