i did a very simple version of this with just mixed spring greens that included some fresh dill and cubed avocado. the dressing i did just light mayo, lime juice, and cumin. this was lovely and creamy.
Perfect accompaniment to my crab cakes for dinner tonight. Can't wait to hear what my regular miercoles dinner party guests think to it!
Yummy! We loved this. We are cilantro fans, so I threw all ingredients, including cilantro into a mini food processor. I forgot the honey until the very end and am not convinced the dressing needs it. May go without the honey next time.
Mmm, I loved this salad! The dressing tasted a bit overwhelmingly of olive oil at first, but after sitting in the fridge for 1/2 hour or so, the flavors blended together nicely. I used butter lettuce instead of iceberg, which I thought was fabulous. I think some garlic might make a nice addition. I'm only giving it 4 stars just because DS and DH didn't like it as well--neither cared for the dressing. I think it was the cumin-olive oil blend that put them off, perhaps. I expect I'll make it for just me, though! Thanks for sharing!
Made for I Recommend Tag. I only made the dressing, but it was awesome. Had it on taco salad with guacamole. I recently found out that I will need to make all my own salad dressings and this one will definitely be on my list. Thanks for posting this Sharon!
We used the dressing as something different on our green salad with dinner tonight... Delicious! We used an extra light EVOO for a more delicate flavour.
I found the dressing to have a strong EVOO taste so I used the juice of 1 whole lime which doubled the amount of lime juice. I only used 1/2 tsp of cumin and found that to be just the right amount. I also enjoyed the slight sweetness the bit of honey added. Thanks for posting.
I thought this was soooooo interesting. I really liked it. I only gave it 4 stars because my husband did not go for it at all, so I will not make it again. Thank you for this recipe--it was delicious!
Ahhhhh, this is that special salad, that makes the whole meal complete. The blend of lime, honey, and cumin mixed with mayonnaise is delicious! I could of, (ok I did) licked the side of the blender. I added a bit of green onion, but other then that, everything was followed to the tee. Will be making this quite often, Sharon! Thanks! *ZWT3 07*
Despite the oil and mayo, I found this salad to taste very light and refreshing. I used the sugar not the honey. The salad is simple, but the mild flavors go very well with the cumin and citrus. I was tempted to add sweet onions, but I didn't. It's the simplicity of the salad that makes it great for us avocado lovers. ;) The only thing that I may add to the salad in the future is fresh cilantro, but I do love it as is. Thanx for posting this.
