  • 1/4 cup(s) fresh lime juice


  1. TGI Friday's Copycat Cilantro Lime Dressing

  2. 1/4 cup fresh lime juice ( 1 good sized lime)
  3. 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  4. 1/3 cup honey
  5. 1 garlic clove peeled & minced
  6. 1 med sized jalapeno de-seeded de-ribbed
  7. 3/4 tsp grated fresh ginger
  8. 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  9. Salt to taste ( I used 6 pinches of kosher salt)
  10. 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  11. Juice the lime to 1/4 cup - (I am restaurant background, so used one good
  12. sized lime) wash and pick leaves off of several sprigs of cilantro, chop
  13. coarsely to equal a heaping 1/4 cup peel and mince a garlic clove, if they
  14. are small use 2, grate the fresh ginger, mince the jalapeno, put all of
  15. the above in a food processor and process until every thing is very fine
  16. pieces. Add the honey & balsamic vinegar process a little, then drizzle in
  17. the olive oil. Salt to taste, I used 6 pinches of kosher salt. Table salt,
  18. don't use as much.

  19. I used a little mini-Cuisinart to do all the processing, there are little
  20. holes in the lid, perfect for drizzling the oil.

  21. Monari Federzoni Balsamic vinegar of Modena - brand is good and sweet, and
  22. easy on the pocketbook. Hint: buy fresh ginger, peel it and wrap chunks in
  23. film and freeze. You'll always have it on hand, and it's easier to grate.
  24. This is a very close match to Friday's. I read several here and online,
  25. and just kept tasting the 'sample' I bought from the restaurant. VERY
  26. close indeed !!
