TGIF coleslaw recipe

cilantro and lime; we loved it in the restaurant

  • Yield: 1 serving


  • 1/4 cup(s) fresh lime juice


TGI Friday's Copycat Cilantro Lime Dressing

1/4 cup fresh lime juice ( 1 good sized lime)

1/4 cup fresh cilantro

1/3 cup honey

1 garlic clove peeled & minced

1 med sized jalapeno de-seeded de-ribbed

3/4 tsp grated fresh ginger

2 tsp balsamic vinegar

Salt to taste ( I used 6 pinches of kosher salt)

1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Juice the lime to 1/4 cup - (I am restaurant background, so used one good

sized lime) wash and pick leaves off of several sprigs of cilantro, chop

coarsely to equal a heaping 1/4 cup peel and mince a garlic clove, if they

are small use 2, grate the fresh ginger, mince the jalapeno, put all of

the above in a food processor and process until every thing is very fine

pieces. Add the honey & balsamic vinegar process a little, then drizzle in

the olive oil. Salt to taste, I used 6 pinches of kosher salt. Table salt,

don't use as much.

I used a little mini-Cuisinart to do all the processing, there are little

holes in the lid, perfect for drizzling the oil.

Monari Federzoni Balsamic vinegar of Modena - brand is good and sweet, and

easy on the pocketbook. Hint: buy fresh ginger, peel it and wrap chunks in

film and freeze. You'll always have it on hand, and it's easier to grate.

This is a very close match to Friday's. I read several here and online,

and just kept tasting the 'sample' I bought from the restaurant. VERY

close indeed !!
