Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette

Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette is one of my favorite dressings for one of my favorite salads. Though originally served and purchased often at the Sundown Saloon, I have managed to recreate this in my own kitchen for a close second version of a long time favorite. The Salad this goes to I will be naming the Tex Mex chopped salad, but I can think of a lot of other salads or grilled meats this would taste superb on.

8 tablespoons oil.
6 tablespoons Lime juice
1 or 2 cloves garlic
Half a bunch of fresh cilantro
1/4 cup to 1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon sugar (if dressing is too sour add more)
1 teaspoon salt

1 raw egg - optional to those who fear them.

  1. In a blender combine the ingredients.
  2. Taste.
  3. Adjust ingredients or seasons to your liking. I like mine on the limey/sour side, but you may want it creamier.
