I am one of those people who loves cilantro.  I love Mexican food and I love cilantro added to Asian inspired salads.  But, if you’re not fond of cilantro, then either add a little less cilantro to the blender or add a little jalapeno to mask the flavor.   Jalapeno is a nice addition.  So is garlic.  But when I’m making this Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette just for myself I like to keep things simple and on the mellow side.  Another great thing about this Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette is it also doubles as a really tasty chicken marinade.  And as we’re heading into both salad and grillin weather – this cilantro lime dressing will come in handy for you during the warm summer months.
