Cilantro Citrus Salad Dressing

What to do with the rest of that huge chunk of cilantro from Winco? Make salad dressing!

I poked around for cilantro dressing recipes and decided to adapt from this salad book. However, her recipe doesn't have anything sweet, which I thought it was lacking, so I added honey.

In food processor, dump while running:

1 clove garlic

1/4 C washed cilantro

Scrape down the sides. Pulse a couple more times. Then add while running:

2-3 TB C lime/lemon juice

sprinkle lime/lemon zest

1/4 C olive oil

1 tea honey

1/4 tea or a pinch of cumin
(seeds or powder)

The mixture should emulsify, which will make it creamy. Serve over salad, especially with avocados. Delish!
