Honey Key Lime Dressing

Honey Key Lime Dressing

Honey Key Lime Dressing is not just a dressing. It’s a marinade, a dip, a condiment on burgers or sandwiches, and anything else you can think of.

It’s pure crack.

How often have I featured a dressing or a condiment? If I have, I’ve since forgotten.

That should indicate to you that this is the bomb.com.

How to Enjoy Honey Key Lime Dressing

Ok, so yes, I made a fantastic chicken taco salad (in a tortilla bowl) that I may or may not have planned on showing off in this post.

However, {ahem} I whored it up a little too much.

I have a habit of doing that (so sorry) but I do have plans on remaking it for y’all.


See what I mean? It’s definitely fantastic, but it has a whole lot going on. When I post that for y’all I’ll make sure to present it in a way that’s a little more pic friendly as far as seeing what’s all in there.

I made some grilled chicken, slow cooked beans, homemade guacamole, pico de gallo, etc.

We know that I could really go on and on about it for days, but let’s get down to business.

Wait! Hold the F up. Did I not mention that there are freshly pickled jalapeños on that salad? 

That was almost like forgetting my children!

They are there and contribute so much to this salad.

Today, however, it’s all about this dressing, which happens to really make the whole salad very magical.


I rarely see key limes, but a few days ago they were so cheap at a local market, like ridiculously cheap. And, whaddayaknow. I happened to be craving Mexican.

I know, shocker.

Within two days these cute little things have been squeezed into guacamole, salsa, pico, right on top of salads. Now this lovely, bright, citrusy-yet-so-excruciatingly-delicious-that-you-can’t-help-but-to-pour-some-on-your-finger dressing was born from the cute little things.

Even after pouring it on your salad.

Or your whatever.

I just want to name it Honey Key Lime Crack.

I know, I know.

I won’t.

Don’t you just love this little OXO dressing shaker? It’s the cutest. I use it so much more than I ever thought I would.
