Cilantro Citrus Vinaigrette

Since we love to have salads at lunch, I'm always on the lookout for a way to change up our usual vinaigrette.  There is an endless variety of ways to change up a vinaigrette and I found this one to be quite good.  I started with lime, lemon and freshly squeezed orange juice, added rice vinegar, sea salt, and honey in the blender.  I drizzled in grapeseed oil and finally added some chopped cilantro. 

A delicious way to change up a salad.

Cilantro-Citrus Vinaigrette
Makes about 1 1/2 cups 

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1/4 cup rice vinegar
4-5 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
1 cup grapeseed oil
1/2 cup roughly chopped cilantro, stems removed

In the jar of your blender, combine citrus juices, vinegar, garlic, salt and honey.  Blend until ingredients are complete combined.  With the blender running, add the oil in a steady stream.  Add cilantro and blend until the cilantro has broken down but still maintains some of its texture.  Serve with greens, on any type of salad or use as a marinade.
