Honey-Citrus Vinaigrette

CATEGORIES: Salad Dressings, Sara

Have you ever looked at the ingredient list for something and just known in the pit of your soul that your taste buds would love it?? That’s how I feel about this dressing.

It’s fabulous on all kinds of things, especially salads involving chicken and avocado. I even used the leftovers, adding a bit more cumin and an extra garlic clove or two, to marinate some chicken breasts and they were awesome on the grill. Enjoy!

Sing it with me: “These are a few of my favorite things…”
Oranges, Lime, garlic, honey, onio
n, cumin, salt and pepper.



Try it on a bed of cold romaine, with bites of creamy avocado, juicy mango, pretty red onion and slices of Spicy Honey Chicken


    1. The one in the very first thumbnail photo is from Walmart, like $3! The one in the photo at the end is from Michael’s Craft store, and I think it was only about a buck more!

  1. I know this recipe is from a long time ago, but I’m making the whole delicious salad tonight after seeing it posted on the Southern Institute blog via Sew Much Ado. I just wanted to say that everything about it is so fantastic. I haven’t even finished the chicken yet, and I want to drink the dressing. I had yummy blood oranges on hand, so the juice came out the most amazing plum-magenta color–they’re a bit sweeter than normal oranges, so I decreased the honey just a bit and added some extra lime juice. SO YUM! Thank you for the time you put into making my dinners better! 🙂

  2. Question…Could you use a type of oil other than vegetable? I tried it with olive oil (because I don’t keep vegetable on hand) but it didn’t turn out. Do you think I could use canola?

  3. Okay, I tried this dressing last week, and let me just say it was so good I could have drank it straight from the bowl. No, seriously.

  4. Hey, Kate, I actually just finished taking pics of a yummy vegetarian meal! I’m not planning on posting it for a couple of months, but email me (thedailybite@gmail.com) and I’ll send it to you if you want! Oh, and nice name…way to copy! 😉

  5. Hi girls! I am here to admit that I check out your blog every once in a while. I’m also here to make an outlandish request. Some vegetarian recipes! My crazy husband became veg about a year and a half ago. Consequently I stopped cooking. I’m trying to get back into it and I need easy, quick and filling meal ideas. HELP ME and I’ll love you forever. He’ll eat a little fish every once in a while, and he’s okay with a little dairy but not a whole dish centered on cheese. (Seriously what’s wrong with this guy? Ugh.) Okay I’ve hijacked your comments section. Love your blog. And, oh, it’s prettykatemachine from bbc. Later!
