Carne Asada Vinaigrette
Craving some carne asada for dinner, I stumbled upon an excellent marinade recipe when I realized how similar that recipe was to my go-to Lemon Yogurt Vinaigrette salad dressing. Feeling inspired, I merged the recipes, making a sort of Carne Asada Vinaigrette which is delicious and, for a salad dressing, healthy. The greek yogurt provides a hidden boost of protein, and unlike store bought dressings, contains no heavily processed oils like canola, sunflower, or palm.
1 cup Lime Juice (or the juice of 3 limes)
1 cup Orange Juice (or the juice of 1 medium orange)
4 Garlic Cloves
1 bunch Cilantro
2 teaspoons Salt
1 Jalapeno Pepper
¼ cup White Vinegar
1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 cup Greek Yogurt
In a blender, combine the lime juice, orange juice, garlic cloves, cilantro, salt, vinegar and jalapeno pepper. Let the mixture sit for 5-15 minutes before blending to tame the flavor of the garlic.
Blend the mixture until thoroughly combined (the cilantro should be fine enough that it won’t get stuck in your teeth)
With the blender on its slowest setting, pour the olive oil in a steady stream until combined.
Pour the greek yogurt in a bowl and slowly add the dressing mixture stirring constantly.
