It really is the dressing that makes a salad. Just like the little unexpected, delicious experiences that make our days.
This zesty cilantro lime dressing is a favorite that never fails to satisfy – and a serving is right around 2 net carbs!
It’s simple to whip up in the food processor, lasts for nearly a week in the fridge, and pops with flavor!
Plus, I’m a lime addict. I love to add that acidic kick to so many dishes.
As a type 1 diabetic, I really, really need to love salad and other low-carb dishes. My secret to loving my diet rather than longing for desserts?
Beautiful, homemade dressings and sauces.
When I chop up and toss salad ingredients together, I see that bowl as an investment. All of those fresh, crisp ingredients are expensive and packed with nutrition. It would be a real shame to dump a boring, fattening, sugar-laden, store-bought “dressing” on those bright, beautiful veggies.
So, don’t do it.
Seriously. Throw out your wishbones and hidden valleys. The magic of loving your salads is in marrying fresh, diverse ingredients with a fresh, made with love dressing.
Embrace the extra 10 minutes to make your salad an experience that fills you with joy and anticipation for the next. And this recipe is perfect for that because it makes enough to last for several salads, veggie snacks, and taco night! (Oh man, taco night…)
