Cilantro-Lime Vinegarette

Submitted by: HEDANDTOE

Introduction

I love this dressing on just about any salad, but I also love it because it works fabulously as a fresh, bright marinade for just about any kind of meat. For fish tacos, just marinate any kind of mild white fish (like cod, tilapia, red snapper, or mahi mahi) for about 20 minutes and then lightly brush a grill with oil and cook over medium heat for 8-12 minutes (depending on the thickness of the fish) until the fish flakes easily. Flake the fish and season with Kosher salt and a little extra dressing if you like I love this dressing on just about any salad, but I also love it because it works fabulously as a fresh, bright marinade for just about any kind of meat.

Ingredients

    1/4 c. fresh lime juice (about 2-3 juicy limes)
    1/4 c. white wine vinegar or rice vinegar
    4-5 cloves garlic
    1/2 tsp. Kosher or sea salt
    2 tsp. sugar
    1 c. canola oil
    1/2 c. roughly chopped cilantro, stems removed


Directions

In the jar of your blender, combine the lime juice, vinegar, garlic, salt, and sugar. Blend on high until everything is combined. With the blender running, pour the oil in as a steady stream. Add cilantro and blend until the cilantro has broken down but it isn't completely pureed--you want to see some of the texture of the cilantro leaves.
Serve over greens, any kind of Mexican salad, or use as a marinade for meat or vegetables.
