I have the original Nordstrom recipe, and it is suppose to be 2 TBSP honey. I make this salad often with raving reviews. Definitely use the Chipotles in adobe sauce. The recipe only calls for 2 tsp. pureed. I put three chipotles (dripping in sauce) in the food processor. The crowd loves it.
An absolutely delicious dressing. I made it as directed, except used only 1/3 cup of olive oil. No need for 3/4 cup of oil! I made the salad with spinach, tomato, cheddar, roasted red peppers and left over roasted game hen. I will be making this often. Thank you for the recipe.
I also make a very similar recipe (with more lime juice and more honey). If you like cilantro, you'll love this recipe! I serve it, as stated in my recipe with "fresh corn, monterey jack cheese, diced tomatoes, roasted sweet peppers, crunchy tortilla strips and seared jumbo shrimp atop a mix of baby greens & romaine lettuce then splashed with an exceptionally good Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette". Delicious!
I made this recipe with 1 tablespoon of honey, turned out just right. My family loved it. We ate the leftovers the second night. I had a little extra dressing so I added it to a can of black beans for an amazing bean dip. My 18 year old daughter swore she didn't like beens until she tried it....She loved it!
I treated myself to this salad the other day and had to find the recipe online to make at home. Spot on! I did switch up 1/2 veg oil and 1/2 olive oil for the canola oil and 2 T of green chilies (canned) for the adobo. To make mine version I used spring mix, fresh spinach, Mexican seasoned chicken strips, Cojito cheese, baby tomatoes, fresh cilantro, sunflower seeds (out of pumpkin seeds).
Ummmm.... I don't know which Nordstrom this one came from but it's most likely from the cafe at the Nordstrom Outlet.....Tastes nasty.... I made it first just as the recipe called for but it was so bad I had to throw it out....BUT if you use 2 TBSP of honey instead of 2 tsp AND omit the chilis in adobe sauce, only then is it a "dead ringer" for the dressing at Nordstrom!!!
