Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup finely minced fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 cup neutral-flavored salad oil (such as sunflower or safflower)
  • 3 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Mexican oregano
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Measure ingredients into the bowl of a mini food processor (or blender). Pulse until well-blended and emulsified. Taste and adjust seasonings, adding more salt and pepper if necessary. (Alternatively, you may measure all ingredients into a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake vigorously, OR whisk the ingredients together in a bowl.)
  • Store leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator; allow to come to room temperature and shake well before using.

Notes

If you don't have Mexican oregano on hand, you may substitute regular (Mediterranean) oregano.
