Cilantro-Lime Honey Salad Dressing

Do you love cilantro?  Then this salad dressing is for you!

We're huge cilantro fans over here at the Sweet Pea home, and recently I found out that a very special person in G's life is a cilantro-lover too...his Kindergarten teacher. So in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, I share this recipe created for G's teacher.

You will love this cilantro dressing on your salad, but we had it with dinner the other night and all of us started dipping our grilled chicken and other things in it too.  Enjoy!

Cilantro-Lime Honey Salad Dressing
(makes about 1/2 cup dressing, but can easily be doubled)

1/2 cup (packed) fresh cilantro (feel free to use the stems, just cut off the very bottoms)
2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice (about 1 medium lime)
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 cup canola or olive oil

In a food processor or blender, add the cilantro, garlic, lime juice, apple cider vinegar, honey, salt, pepper and ground cumin.

Process until roughly chopped.  Scrape the sides

With the food processor or blender running, add the oil.  Scrape the sides again and process until nearly smooth.

Serve with greens or however you choose to enjoy it!

Life is sweet,

Sounds amazing. I am pretty sure cilantro is the one herb we forgot to plant this year. Oops. We have mint, parsley, basil and rosemary, but no cilantro!! I wonder if it's too late??

Any recipe for an avocado dressing?

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
