  • 3/4 cup  Lime Infused Honey
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or canola oil
  • 1/4 cup canola oil


  1. Prepare Your Infusion: Begin by selecting your desired fresh herbs. Wash them thoroughly and pat them dry with a clean kitchen towel. For this recipe, let's opt for the aromatic allure of basil leaves. Roll them gently between your palms to release their essential oils, intensifying their flavor.
  2. Blend Honey and Dijon mustard in a bowl until well combined. This is the base of our vinaigrette, combining the tangy lime acidity with the sweet honey flavor.
  3. Infuse with Herbaceous Delight: Finely chop the prepared basil leaves and add them to the bowl. Gently mix the herbs into the mixture, letting their flavor spread throughout the vinaigrette.
  4. Introduce the Aromatic Garlic: Mince a clove of garlic with precision and add it to the bowl. The garlic's pungent aroma will mingle with the herbal notes, adding depth and complexity to our vinaigrette.
  5. Embrace the Elegance of Olive Oil: Slowly drizzle extra-virgin olive oil into the bowl while whisking continuously. Mixing slowly makes the dressing smooth, covering each salad leaf nicely.
  6. Season to Perfection: Season the vinaigrette with a pinch of salt and a generous grind of black pepper. Taste and adjust the seasoning according to your preference, ensuring a perfect balance of flavors.
  7. Let the vinaigrette sit for a few minutes so the flavors blend nicely. The small break enhances the depth and complexity of the flavor, ensuring a symphony of fun in every bite.
  8. Serve and Savor: Drizzle this exquisite vinaigrette over a crisp salad of mixed greens, ripe tomatoes, and creamy avocado. Let each forkful transport you to a realm of culinary bliss, where freshness meets elegance in perfect harmony.

  7. If you made a lot of vinaigrette and won't use it all in a week, freeze some in ice cube trays. This will help preserve the vinaigrette for longer.
  8. Simply pour the vinaigrette into the ice cube trays and place them in the freezer. Once frozen, transfer the vinaigrette cubes to a resealable bag for easy storage.
  9. Once frozen, transfer the vinaigrette cubes to a freezer bag for long-term storage. Thaw individual cubes as needed by placing them in the refrigerator overnight or defrosting them gently in the microwave.
