Hello there! If you are a regular reader of this blog, you might be surprised to be hearing from me today. You've probably noticed I post recipes twice a week, and almost never on the weekend. But here I am, posting a recipe on the weekend. 

Most of you are probably reading this long after I hit "publish" of course, and it could be any day of the week. Hello to you as well! 👋

This last week, I was working on a recipe for a Spicy Watermelon and Avocado Salad (it is killer BTW), and teased it on my Instagram account. And you guys were excited! And I am too. Must I explain why? The dish contains the words watermelon, avocado, and spicy. THREE things worth getting excited about! 

I realized however that the dressing for this salad is a lip-smacking tang-master flavor bomb on it's own, and something that shouldn't just be limited to one salad. You know how people hate being put into little boxes? This dressing hates that too. And of course it does! Have a summery salad that needs some lift? This dressing. Found yourself with a burrito bowl in need of a bit more sauce? This dressing. About to eat an avocado with a spoon? You guessed it, a drizzle of this over top will take it over the edge. 

So here it is, the Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette that is the star of todays show. Come back on Thursday for the main event: Spicy Watermelon and Avocado Salad!
