Best Honey Lime Vinaigrette Ever

Honey-Lime Vinaigrette by The Yummy Life

I made this for a client this week. She hired me to come and make her nourishing meals after just having her second: a sweet, tiny baby girl (love my job!). Their family mainly eats Paleo, so I chose Beef Carnitas Tacos for their first meal and was looking for a nice lime salad dressing to go with the salad. I was hoping I could find one with a little cumin mixed in. I didn’t have time to play around with my own version, so I hit the internet for some good recipes. And this is what I found….

You guys. I could drink this it’s so good! I won’t write out the whole recipe here because it’s not my own, but I will link to it. Go over to The Yummy Life and check it out and if you try it and like it, leave her a comment. It rules.

P.S. I’m not into canola oil at all. Canola is one of the biggest GMO crops in the U.S., so opt for an organic, cold-pressed Grapeseed oil instead.

  • Thanks so much for the enthusiastic endorsement of this recipe! I appreciate the link love, too. BTW, I’ve switched to using grapeseed oil in place of canola, too, for the same reason you explain. I need to go back and update some of my older recipes like this one. Totally agree with you. Love your blog! :-)

      Yeay!! Yeah, this post has gotten ‘Pinned’ quite a bit and rightfully so, it’s a fabulous recipe! Nice work! Thanks for stopping by :) I hear you, so much of what I used to consume I don’t anymore, but it’s been a long process. I used to buy canola oil as well thinking I was being healthy, but now I know! I tried it with the grapeseed and it was great!
