Cilantro + Citrus Vinaigrette is the dressing of my dreams. Punchy and vibrant green, this recipe adds major flavor to dinner party or weeknight salads. You can also find me drizzling it on top of grilled veg or proteins, on tacos, or enjoying it as a dip. To make it you’ll blend cilantro, shallot, citrus, jalapeno, and olive oil in a blender until smooth. So simple. Add pepitas to give it some heft and turn it into more of a sauce. This is also the dressing recipe my friends have been requesting for *years* so let this be your warning: if you serve this on a salad, the people in your life will never stop asking you to make it. Check out the Let’s Riff section beneath the recipe for easy ingredient substitutions.
