Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette

Thanks to the editor's of Cook's Illustrated for this yummy taco salad dressing, which almost caused Dan and me to die of yumminess when we tasted it this weekend:

5 T fresh lime juice
1 shallot, peeled (I omitted this)
1 jalepeno chile, stemmed and seeded (I also omitted this)
1 small garlic clove, peeled
1 t sugar
1/2 t ground cumin
1/2 c fresh cilantro
3/4 c extra-virgin olive oil

Process lime juice, shallot, jalapeno, garlic, sugar, cumin, and 1/2 t salt in blender until shallot and garlic are finely chopped, about 15 seconds. With blender running, add cilantro, then oil, and continue to process until smooth and emulsified, about 15 seconds.

This sounds wonderful. I'll have to try it. Thanks for posting the recipe.

I love Esther's middle name obsession. I remember becoming aware of middle names and feeling completely neglected because apparently my parents forgot to give me one.

I just looked through your blog for a moment -- mostly to see the pictures, I confess. It's really a delay tactic because I need to get vaccuuming and get the kids ready for swimming. OOPS. It was wonderful to see all those smiling faces again. You have such beautiful children. They are adorable! Good job, Mom!
