Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette

I think making your own salad dressings is the best! You can make them taste exactly how you want and they're so easy to make. I had never really pictured myself making my own vinaigrette, but this was one I couldn't pass up. It's another recipe from ourbestbites.com and it tastes great, especially with fruit on your salad. It's very light and doesn't attack you with a vinegar taste. Oh and I got this bottle at Wal-Mart. So fun for dressings and sauces.

Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 2-3 juicy limes)

1/4 cup white wine vinegar or rice vinegar

4-5 cloves garlic

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. sugar

1 cup canola oil

1/2 cup roughly chopped cilantro, stems removed

In the jar of your blender, combine lime juice, vinegar, garlic, salt, and sugar. Blend until ingredients are completely combined. With the blender running, add the oil in a steady stream. Add cilantro and blend until the cilantro has broken down but still maintains some of its texture. Serve with greens, on any type of Mexican salad, or use as a marinade.
