Tequila Lime Dressing

Tired of vinaigrette for salad dressing? I was too. I hit a balsamic vinegar rut. I wanted something zesty and different that didn’t taste like any salad dressing I’d had before.

I often use lime juice for dressing, but wanted to amp the tasty meter up a few notches. I asked myself, what makes lime juice tastier? Tequila of course!

The combination of tequila and raw honey makes for a dressing that will send your salads and taste buds through the roof.

This dressing would also make an amazing marinade for chicken, seafood, or pork!

Hope you enjoy!

  2. This sounds amazing! I cant wait to make it. I feel like I could make a large batch, then use it on more than just salad, but thicken it to a sauce for chicken, and also a great flavor enhancer for rice!
