Lime-Herb Dressing

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by Sandi From CA

I've been looking forEVER for an herby-lime dressing that rivals Avanti Cafe in Pasadena and this may be it. I haven't tried it yet, but am plopping it down here for safe-keeping.

This worked well over a spinach salad, it was strong and acidic enough to keep the raw spinach from tasting bitter. It has a very strong taste, and is highly tangy, so use sparingly! I think that next time I'll increase the mint just a smidgen. I blended everything together in a mini food processor and stuck it in the fridge until the other dishes were ready. Not a 5 really, but definitely a 4 (which is pretty good for a salad dressing).
