 Chili Lime Vinaigrette

This is one of my favoriteeeee salad dressings!  It is seriously so tasty and the perfect homemade touch to a summer dinner party.  I’ve said it before, homemade condiments are a million times better than any store bought version and usually pretty easy to make.  Pair this dressing with a simple grilled shrimp for an entrée salad, or just use greens and make a grilled skirt steak with chimichurri as the main course!
