Honey-Lime Vinaigrette Recipe

Enjoy this light and refreshing Honey-Lime Vinaigrette. Buy your own lime tree and make this vinaigrette straight out your backyard!

Prep: 5 minutes
Servings: 8


  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup grapeseed oil


Blend lime juice, honey, mustard, lemon zest, garlic powder, salt, black pepper, and cumin in a blender; slowly pour olive oil and grapeseed oil into the mixture while blending to emulsify the oil into the juice.

You can use vegetable oil in place of grapeseed oil if preferred.

Store the vinaigrette in a sealed mason jar in the fridge. Use it within a week. Always shake the dressing well before serving. If oil solidifies while in the refrigerator, let it sit out at room temperature until it returns to liquid form.

You could also use this as a marinade for chicken or to drizzle over fish or sliced tomatoes and cucumbers.
