That's a long name for something so simple! This just may be my new favorite dressing. I already gushed about my newfound love of this sauce on a previous post. It is so versatile! Like I said, I originally made it as a dipping sauce for some Chicken Flautas, then as a dressing on a salad, and I also drizzled some on our Chicken Fajitas the following day!
Or if you are a sauce kinda gurl or guy, you can just slurp it off of your fingers... straight up, like me. Yes, I did test it out for you guys like that.
It is THAT good!
The ladies over at Our Best Bites used 1 lime to get about 2 tablespoons. I dunno how they dun it. Cuz 1 lime didn't even get me 1 tablespoon! And I had only bought one lime. So in a pinch, I used my lime juice that comes in a mini bottle. If you want to use only fresh lime juice, be sure to buy at least 3 limes to yield 2 tablespoons of juice, maybe even more! I would have definitely bought more limes if I had known. Next time I will know better, and there will be a thousand more next times!
