Grilled Lime Vinaigrette

Aderezo de Limón Asado
Servings: 13/4 generous cups


  • 2 or 3large limes
  • 1/2cup cilantro
  • 2/3cup olive oil
  • 1 or 2fresh green chiles (I like serrano here), stemmed and roughly chopped
  • 2tablespoons honey
  • Salt


Fold a piece of foil into a square and turn the edges upwards.  Heat a gas grill (or grill pan) to medium or light a charcoal fire and let it burn until medium hot. Place the limes, cut side down, on the piece of foil and grill for 3-4 minutes. Flip and grill for 3-4 minutes more. Remove from grill and allow to cool.

Using a Mexican lime squeezer, juice the limes into a glass measuring cup (and add any juice leftover in your foil tray), yielding about 1/3 of a cup. Pour the lime juice into a blender jar and add the cilantro, chiles, honey, and 1 teaspoon salt. Blend, adding oil in a thin stream until the mixture is smooth.


  1. What brand of honey did you use in this recipe?? My mother-in-law lives in Playa del Carmen and she can bring me some!!!! Can you please tell me what brand was in that tall bottle and hopefully, where/if I can find it in Playa del Carmen?? Thank You.
