Summertime nachos and salad with honey lime dressing

ImageSo I realized I hadn’t posted any food recipes I have been making lately… and that doesn’t mean I haven’t been cooking, I just have been bad about posting them! But my meal creation the other night seemed worth posting because of its simplicity, yet deliciousness.

Honey Lime Salad Dressing

Shake these ingredients together in a jar:

  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 T. honey
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 2 small garlic cloves (pressed)
  • ¼ tsp. cumin
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • ¼ cup olive oil

A great addition would be cilantro, however we did not have any. I definitely want to make this again. I put it over salad greens and chopped up veggies (peppers, cucumbers, carrots, summer squash, red onion, and local cherry tomatoes)…yummy!

We also ate it next to homemade black bean nachos. Made by putting a layer of corn chips, shredded cheese, then a mixture of black beans (rinsed and drained), tomatoes, onions, shredded summer squash and more shredded cheese. Served with avocados and salsa on the side!

Oh and also great paired with a margarita of course!
