We use this dressing for most of our salads. It is super quick to make, requires only one fresh ingredient – lime – and stays alive for two weeks in the fridge.



Yields 200 ml

  • 180 ml of olive oil
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


  1. Combine olive oil, lime juice, mustard, honey, and pressed garlic, then whisk to blend. Add more olive oil to achieve desired consistency (liquid but not too watery).
  2. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Notes & tips

Keep in a fridge for up to two weeks. Shake before using again.

If the olive oil became solid in the fridge, let it warm to room temperature or quickly warm up in a microwave.

The easiest way to peel garlic is to smash it: put a clove of garlic on a cutting board, put your chef’s knife on top of it so the blade side lays on the clove, and hit the side of the knife with your hand. Now you could peel the clove.
