Healthy Chili Lime Dressing

So, you made the delicious tacos, guacamole and salsa. You have a bit of everything left over the next day- what are you going to do with them?? Well, why don’t you make a delicious taco salad. To keep with the healthy theme, I present to you my favorite, healthy dressing. I have this in my fridge. I hardly ever use bottled salad dressings any more. I do have them in the fridge in case I run out of mine but I prefer the ones I make. Salad dressing are super easy to make. The great thing about making your own is that you can adjust the oil and sugar. I like mine without a lot of oil. I like more citrus and flavor- you can adjust your’s according to taste. I make a batch that lasts me a week. This particular one is great to use with the Latin style taco filling, guacamole and salsa. Try this dressing- you will never want a bottled one again!

  • Juice of 2 large limes
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

Add the lime juice, orange juice, olive oil, water, agave, garlic, cilantro, cayenne pepper, salt and cumin powder to a small container with an air-tight lid. Mix well until the dressing is incorporated. Taste and adjust accordingly.
