This is one of my favorite go-to vinaigrettes. I decided to put it on the blog after I served it to some friends and they asked to take the rest of the jar home after dinner.

I figure if we can’t get enough of it, and they can’t get enough of it, you might like it as well!

Simply pour all the ingredients in a mason jar and shake until smooth and creamy.

  1. Awesome. I substituted coconut nectar in place of honey. Instead of cream, I used two tablespoons of avocado. I didn’t have any pumpkin seeds on hand, so I use chopped pistachios and used pumpkin oil instead of olive oil. It came out really really great!

  2. This was super easy to make. I did add 2 cloves of garlic instead of just 1, since I am a big fan of garlic. I really like the flavor and can hardly wait to use it on a salad. I am not partial to sweet dressings, so I think I might reduce the amount of honey.

  3. Hi! I was wondering what I could use instead of heavy cream because I am vegan. Any suggestions? 

  4. great with raw beets!

  14. Homemade salad dressings are simply the best! I never buy dressing anymore!

  15. Just found this website and have found 3 recipes I will be making the next couple of weeks – just curious if you’ve made this with lemon instead of lime? I don’t have any limes on hand and want to make this now!

  16. I was surprised to see cream used here, I was expecting mayo. How do you think that may work instead? Can’t get me head around the addition of cream

    • I was wondering something similar… only I’d like to omit the cream altogether! Should any adjustments be made to compensate?

    • Instead of cream, you can use yogurt, the thicker the better. Try spooning some yogurt into a coffee filter, let rest overnight, and in the morning its very thick (spreadable). Keep refrigerated.

  17. I’m not sure I’ve tried anything quite like this…can’t wait to make it!

  18. This looks and sounds amazing! I love lime and vinaigrettes are my favourite types of dressings!

  19. Garlic and lime… sounds like an interesting pair. It sounds great as a summer vinaigrette!

  20. This sounds delicious, I’m wondering, can it be made to keep in the fridge? How long do you think it will stay good?

  21. This looks good. I am not a lime or lemon fan. Anything you could suggest I could use? Or maybe not add it at all?

    Thanks

  22. So amazingly delicious!

  23. Some of my favorite flavors! This would be perfect on almost any salad!

  24. This sounds like the perfect summer salad dressing! I’m imagining this on a salad of lettuce and spinach, heirloom tomatoes, sliced onions, and dried cranberries…yum! Perfection. Pinned!
