Why you’ll love this Zesty Lime Salad Dressing

Who buys bottled salad dressing anymore?  I rarely do- maybe a bottle of ranch or blue cheese for a batch of wings, but generally speaking, I concoct my own salad dressings.  I personally like the bitter flavors of this salad dressing on similarly bitter lettuce, like frisee or radicchio with a little bit of sweet cranberries or candied nuts.  Zesty Lime Salad Dressing can also be used as a marinade for chicken or seafood and a basting sauce for grilled vegetables.
