Creamy Cilantro Lime Dressing

I’m not going to lie to you, I do buy my salad dressing. There just happen to be a few that I really like and so I keep them on hand. But, I will tell you this, I REALLY like homemade salad dressing. I sure do and right now I’m really loving this Creamy Cilantro Lime Salad Dressing.

You Know Me

Some of you know me by now so you know I’m going to tell you to make your own food. It’s just better for you in almost every way. Salad dressing is no exception. From simple ingredients, you can make something pretty fantastic. And it comes together quickly and that’s also very magical.

Food Waste and Salad Dressing?

Are the two connected in some way? Why yes they are and let me explain. I’m part of an awesome recipe sharing group called the Recipe Redux. Every month they come up with a fun challenge for us. This month we needed to make a recipe out of something that normally gets wasted. My idea? Cilantro stems.

Don’t Toss Those Stems!

Really, don’t do it! Cilantro stems are always getting tossed in the trash. And for no good reason! Those stems are delicious and deserve to be showcased in your food just as much as those leaves! Case in point – this awesome salad dressing. You can literally wash the cilantro and toss the whole branch in there. And it’s GOOD! So stop throwing them away, ok?
