  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • small bunch of cilantro 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 small cloves garlic pressed through garlic press
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried coriander
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Add all the ingredients into a mason jar, close the lid and shake for 1 minute until well combined.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper. Adjust the sweet-sour ratio when necessary (add more honey if it's too sweet and add more lime juice if it's not sour enough).
  • Enjoy!


  • You could also make this dressing in a food processor.
  • Shake the dressing before serving.
  • If you'd like your dressing creamy, you could make this avocado cilantro lime dressing which is very similar to this recipe but it's creamy thanks to avocado and yogurt.
  • You can keep this vinaigrette closed in the fridge for up to 2-3 days but it tastes best freshly prepared.
  • Calories = whole recipe (it will be enough for 4 large salads). This is only an estimate!
