Lime Vinaigrette

This vinaigrette combines white balsamic vinegar, Creole mustard, honey, lime zest, lime juice, and more to create a zesty flavor. It pairs wondefully with the sweet and fresh ingredients in our Summer Pasta Salad, but you might find yourself using it on a wide variety of salads all summer long. If you're feeling adventurous, why not give it a go as a marinade for grilled chicken? You'll get a dose of that sweet and tart flavor with every bite.
