Chipotle Mexican Grill Honey Vinaigrette

Total Time

Can be used as a salad dressing or meat marinade. From: Chef, Jaime Mercado, Chipotle. Source: Texas Cable News/Food. ***Please note: this recipe calls for Kosher salt - a much coarser salt than regular table salt. If you use table salt you SHOULD reduce the salt to 1 Tablespoon. If a recipe calls for Kosher salt you should always 1/2 the amount if you are using table salt. I assume the folks who commented that the recipe was too salty were probably using regular table salt.***

Wow, is this a lot of salt! I followed the directions completely (yes, i used kosher salt), I have to admit that this tasted nothing like Chipotle's (I had some leftover from the restaurant). I couldn't even improve it, had to throw it out (along with my expensive olive oil!) A huge disappointment.

I prepared this recipe exactly as submitted, and it turned out great! Tastes just like the dressing at Chipotle. Thanks irisred5 : )

Watch out for the salt, there is no way they use that much. I made the mistake of not reading the comment on the recipe and tried it as is...holy cow that is a lot of salt. So I doubled the recipe aside from the salt and added some dried chipotle and it turned out much better.
