Cilantro Lime Salad Dressing

I love citrus and spice.  This dressing was strong, but very very tasty

In a blender or food processor mix the following:

1 jalapeno pepper
1 small (1/4 inch) piece ginger root
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tablespoon ancho pepper
Enough cilantro to fill 1/4 cup when you squish it up
1/4 cup lime juice
4 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 - 3/4 cup olive oil   I did 1/2 cup, but I like things strong.

I store mine in the fridge, but it does get a bit hard between uses.  If we dont' use all at one meal I just let it sit out and warm up a bit for the next time then give it a good shake.  It never lasts more than 2 meals.

makes an excellent dip for grilled or baked chicken.
