I don’t want to jinx it, but I think the summer heat is finally dying out; of course now that I said that it will probably be over 90 next week. That’s ok though because you need a few more hot sunny days to try this sweet vinaigrette recipe! I got the idea from the blog Coconut & Lime and figured it would be perfect for a nice sweet summer salad.
Homemade salad dressings used to creep me out. My mom would always tell me not to buy pre-made ones because they are so easy to make, but it took me a while to finally realize it. Now I am going to tell you exactly what my mom used to tell me, DON’T BUY PRE-MADE SALAD DRESSINGS! It really is so easy to make dressing at home and they are usually SO much healthier; not to mention you get to create your own unique dressing every time! This is a very easy vinaigrette recipe that can be turned into practically any fruity vinaigrette recipe.
