Green Lime and Cilantro Vinaigrette
This flavorful no vinegar salad dressing is made with citrus juice, garlic and cilantro, as well as extra-virgin olive oil for a rich consistency. Although a lot of homemade salad dressing recipes do contain vinegar, they do not all have to, and recipes like this lime and cilantro vinaigrette prove that vinegar does not have to be part of a good salad dressing recipe. Use freshly squeezed orange and lime juice for the best results.
This easy no vinegar salad dressing is great drizzled over any kind of salad but the tangy citrus means it will contrast especially well with cheese salads or anything with fish or seafood. You can easily double or treble this recipe to make more servings. Use fresh minced garlic instead of garlic powder if you have some. If you are thinking about making a batch of this, it pays to use the best quality ingredients. Garlic powder does work but fresh garlic gives this no vinegar salad dressing a superior edge.
Just like with many other easy salad recipes, the ingredients for this one can just go in the blender or food processor, so you can whiz them up very quickly and make your vinaigrette in next to no time. A lot of people like to use a mini food processor to make such a recipe. Simply add the ingredients, press the button, and then you can put most of the food processor parts in the dishwasher for easy cleanup.
- ¼ cup lime juice
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- ⅛ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup orange juice
- 1 cup cilantro
- ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
- Puree all the ingredients in a food processor until smooth.

This sweet, sharp salad dressing pairs nicely with salad greens. Add some cheese and nuts to the dish perhaps, or some sliced avocado, and you will find those citrusy flavors in the dressing complement whatever salad ingredients you have chosen to use. Double or triple this recipe if you are feeding a crowd, although our recipe already makes over a cup, and a little goes a long way. Keep it in the refrigerator if you have some left over, and then simply shake the jar to mix the ingredients back together if they separated.
