Cilantro Citrus Vinaigrette

by Sherri Koehler on July 27, 2010

I came up with this tasty salad dressing for a new Roasted Corn & Qunioa Salad recipe I came up with. This is so easy to throw together and would be great in a jicama salad or just as part of a tossed greens salad.

The Stuff

  • 1 bunch cilantro (fresh coriander)
  • juice from 1 large lemon or 3 limes
  • 2 T raw tahini
  • 1/4 c rice vinegar (no, not the seasoned kind)
  • 1/4 t garlic powder *optional
  • 1/4 t xanthan gum *optional

The Making

Cut the stems off the bunch of cilantro about 3-4 inches up. Wash in a colander and shake off just some of the excess water.

Put wet, washed cilantro into blender, add remaining ingredients and blend on high until completely blended.

If the dressing seems a little thick or too vinegary, add some water a tablespoon at a time until it is the right consistency/taste.

If the dressing is very thin or if you would like a very thick dressing you can add the xanthan gum to thicken it. Bob’s Red Mill is a good source for this ingredient.
