I love a good vinaigrette, don’t you? I especially enjoy the versatility of the condiment – it can be used as a sandwich dressing, marinade for chicken, or on vegetables and salads. This honey lime vinaigrette can do it all. Where most dressings call for refined, processed sugars, I see an opportunity to swap in some healthy and delicious honey. I particularly enjoyed using Savannah Bee Company’s Tupelo Honey in this vinaigrette.
Tupelo Honey is such a treat because of the rarity of the honey itself. The White Gum Tupelo Tree produces flowers and nectar so briefly each year (only about 10 days), and in such a small area of the world, I always prefer to use it in multipurpose ways to make it last. It’s no wonder they call White Gum Tupelo honey Southern Gold!
So make this delightful vinaigrette soon and try it on more than just salads!
What You’ll Need:
- 3 tbsp. Savannah Bee Company’s Tupelo Honey
- 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 1 tsp. garlic salt
- 1/4 tsp. cumin
- 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
- ½ tsp. black pepper
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup canola oil
What You Do:
- In a blender (or food processor, jar, or bowl) add all ingredients, saving the two oils to be added last.
- Add the olive and canola oils slowly while blending.
- Pour into a jar, Tupperware, or other container and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
- Toss together with salad, but also try over sliced vegetables.
- Marinade chicken in vinaigrette for a few hours, then grill or bake.
- Try using Acacia honey or Orange Blossom honey for a sweeter flavor delivery.
