Citrus Lime Vinaigrette

Citrus lime vinaigrette is made from freshly squeezed oranges and limes along with chopped cilantro, finely diced jalapeno, olive oil, salt and pepper. It’s a vinaigrette recipe that’s spicy and sweet, tangy and tart. In other words, it’s packed with a whole lot of flavor!

This citrus lime vinaigrette will give any salad recipe and extra punch of flavor and I love it on my Pulled Pork, Cabbage and Arugula Salad.

Tips for Using Jalapeno Peppers

Jalapeno pepper, a type of chili pepper, can range from mild to hot depending on what type of cultivar they are. But most of the capsaicin and spicy heat is concentrated in the light colored membrane and seeds.

  • For less heat, remove the membrane and seeds before dicing
  • For more heat, add some of the seeds back into the recipe

Either way, always be careful about handling jalapeno peppers and never touch your face or eyes as it will immediately burn. The oil from the jalapeno pepper can remain on your hands even after washing with soap and water.
