This Healthy Creamy Lemon and Lime Vinaigrette goes well on many different types of salads.
Think shrimp, white fish, chicken or chick pea type salads and of course with avocados, cabbage, cucumbers, tomatoes and pretty much any type of veggie.
This is the start to a line of “Healthy Vinaigrette” recipes that I will be sharing on this blog over the next few weeks, so if you liked this one.
Then be sure to follow me as I will be releasing more of my favorite homemade vinaigrettes in the coming weeks.
So what makes this a healthy vinaigrette? Well it is the Plain Yogurt, then I mix that delicious yogurt with fresh limes and lemons, cilantro, minced garlic, olive oil and salt to taste.
I know longer by those store bought salad vinaigrette or dressings, because I have learned to make even better ones at home.
This Vinaigrette pairs really well with all types of vegetables and proteins. And can be stored in mason jars in your fridge for up to 3 weeks.
One of my favorite ways to use this dressing would be on fish tacos and over a fresh Corn on the Cob salad. See below for that full recipe!
I like to use mason jars for my dressings. Then you can simply shake everything together and wulla it’s ready to enjoy!
Healthy Creamy and Light = Perfection!
Note: Stores in the fridge up to 3 weeks! Also if you prefer more sweet than tangy vinaigrette feel free to add anywhere from 1 tsp to 1 tbsp of honey to sweeten it up.
Personally I like it without!
