Put garlic clove and salt in a small bowl and mash them together with a fork to form a paste. Add lime juice, zest, and cumin. Whisk lime juice mixture together then slowly whisk in the olive oil.

  • I used white navy beans (don't like garbanzo beans), and omitted the chiles. Super good! I serve it with a BBQ Asian Porkchops (hoisen sauce marinade), and some garlic-ginger stirfried broccoli. Perfectly rounds out the meal. I made it at least once a month! - 6/4/13
