Honey lime Dressing Ingredients

Lime: you can use what you have on hand. I use the organic lime juice. It is ok to use lemon juice.

Olive oil: It is best to buy quality olive oil. Choose cold-pressed, organic and extra virgin oils. Check out Things to Look for While Buying Olive Oil.

Honey: find a beekeeper who keeps the bees in a quiet, forested place, away from the city and pollution. Grab an organic raw honey. If you want, you can substitute agave syrup.

Garlic: it adds a special flavor. Some people don’t like garlic. If I don’t have it, sometimes I just skip it. The dressing still turns out perfectly. You can use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic.

Mustard is made from the seeds of the mustard plant. Mustard imparts a unique flavor to this homemade honey lime dressing.

Ways to use this  honey-lime salad dressing

I really love a simple citrus dressing and always have citrus on hand so I can easily pull a simple dressing together in a pinch. You can use this dressing with your favorite salad or as a steak marinade. Acid is a very effective way to tenderize steak, and citrus always does the trick. Freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice can add a kick to your meat, just perfect taste for grilling. Honey lime dressing pairs well with oven-baked meat.

Olive oil intake can significantly reduce the deposit of fat in the liver.

Is a lime healthier than a lemon? Lemons have significantly more citric acid than limes. Plus, they are an excellent source of potassium and magnesium. But, when it comes to other nutrients, lime fruits are actually healthier. They contain phosphorus, vitamins A and C, B6, B3, calcium, potassium, magnesium and folate.

Lime fruits are nutritional powerhouses — high in vitamin C, antioxidants, and other nutrients. Lime fruit may help:

  • Wounds recover faster by reducing inflammation and stimulating collagen production. Collagen is an essential protein that aids wound repair
  • Boost your immune system.
  • To keep your skin healthy.
  • Reduce heart disease risk factors. Vitamin C may protect against atherosclerosis.
  • Prevent kidney stones.
  • Increase iron absorption
  • Lower risk of certain cancers

Honey, specifically raw, is considered a superfood. Honey has numerous benefits.

Honey has a high concentration of the B-complex vitamins including thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, and pantothenic acid.
