I wanted a dressing to complete a salad that was being served with a Mexican meal. I threw together romaine black beans corn green onion tomatoes and crushed corn chips. The dressing was just what I was looking for to complete our meal. If you like lime you'll like this dressing. Its fresh and full of flavor. I will try it again with the addition of grilled chicken and cheese for a main dish. yummy! Read More

I thought this was just ok. Made it for supper club to go on salad paired with a southwestern style chili. To me it was inconsistent. Either it was a little bland or a very strong honey taste. I shook it well each time but the ingredients didn't blend as well. Read More

Really good! I normally don't use dried cilantro but I tried it in this and really liked it - sort of how I like fresh basil and dried basil as different herbs altogether. I also thought the sweet-to-sour was right on for this - and the serving size is perfect (I cut the recipe in half). We had this on a spinach and red lettuce salad with red and green peppers and jicama. Nice! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I found this recipe at the last minute when I was serving salad and realized I had no dressing (except an old bottle of whatever in the back of the fridge...) I had a few limes that needed to be used and found this to inspire me. It is YUM! My husband loved it and I found myself sticking my finger in the bowl and eating it straight... (yes mom I know I was brought up better than that - sorry!) If you love lime - you'll love this dressing. Read More

My husband and daughter liked it. I thought it had too much cumin. I would cut the cumin in half next time. Thanks! Read More

Excellent! Didn't have cilantro so made without. Dressed some mesclun greens. The tang of the lime/honey with the bitterness of the greens was sublime. Read More

This was a great complement to our Margarita Salmon dinner last night. I cut the cumin to one teaspoon and used fresh cilantro. I made a salad with fresh broccoli mushrooms tomatoes and red onions. Poured the dressing over my salad and let sit in the refrigerator for an hour or so to marinate. Topped with a few shreds of white cheddar cheese...ummm...ummm...good. Read More

Light and refreshing. Nice change from other dressings. I was a little unsure about the dried cilantro I usually prefer fresh ingredients but it worked well. Read More
