nice on a green salad, goes well with white meats and seafood. Makes a nice sweet dressing. With a lovely thick consistency from grapes and cilantro
- 2 cups red seedless grapes (washed & stemmed)
- 1⁄2 bunch cilantro (must be fresh)
- 1⁄4 cup honey
- 1⁄4 cup lemon juice (fresh)
- 1⁄4 cup lime juice (fresh)
- 1⁄2 cup salad oil
- 1 pinch salt (to taste)
- 1 pinch fresh ground pepper (to taste)
- 1 teaspoon cumin (to taste)
- I CANNOT REMEMBER RECIPE EXACTLY, I MAKE MY ADJUSTMENTS TO TASTE PLEASE FEEL FREE TO TWEAK.
- In blender or food processor, blend grapes until well broken down.
- Add cilantro and pulse until chopped and blended; if you use stems pulse longer, you want a fairly smooth consistency.
- Add lemon juice,honey and oil pulse until blended.
- add salt,pepper and cumin to taste.
- Everyone likes it a bit different.
- Note: this dressing must be refrigerated, so that is why i don't use an oil that will solidify, can use olive oil but you will have to remember to take out to warm up. Or for a healthy version reduce or leave oil out.
We liked the freshness of the herbs and citrus in this. I took your advice and used less oil and also used just a pinch of sugar and subbed celery seed for the cumin (personal preference).
Made for PAC 2010. Great easy vinaigrette with a fresh flavor. Loved it. I used it on spring greens and some fresh sliced shallots and some mint, but you could add anything. I added a few peach slices which really went well. Definitely saved. Thx for sharing.
Wonderful tasting dressing for a salad, & I especially liked the fruity grape taste! Easy to make & definitely a keeper for us! Thank you for posting your recipe!
