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 make my own homemade 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.

How to store leftover vinaigrette dressing

This homemade vinaigrette must be kept in an airtight container (such as a mason jar) for 1 to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. It’s definitely worth the 5 minutes it takes to make your own salad dressings because you can keep it on hand for all of your salad needs, or use it to marinate chicken later in the week.
