  • 1/31/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/21 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • Juice of one lime (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 2 cups loosely packed fresh cilantro, thinly sliced or minced
  • 12 cloves fresh garlic, thinly sliced/minced/pressed
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • Optional: dash of cumin and/or oregano


  1. In a high-speed blender, add the ingredients in the order listed. Blend on MEDIUM speed until all the ingredients are mixed together and the liquids emulsify. If the ingredients don’t blend together easily, then add a little extra olive oil.
  2. Refrigerate for about 3-4 days. Contents may settle or thicken. After refrigerating, stir contents prior to serving.


  • To control the consistency of your vinaigrette, consider starting out with 1/3 cup olive oil and then stream in another 1-2 tablespoons while blending the ingredients.
  • Mince or thinly slice the cilantro so it blends easily with the remaining ingredients.
  • Mince, press, or thinly slice the fresh garlic so the cloves blend easily and don’t get stuck under the blades.
