Lime Chipotle Dressing

Limes are incredibly underrated, in my view. I will often add whole limes to my green juice, quarter a lime and serve it on a plate with my chicken and fish dishes, and try my best to find fat, juicy limes for this amazing dressing

For this incredible tangy and flavourful dressing, you need a tin of chipotle peppers in Adobe Sauce – you won’t use it all, so think about throwing it in fajitas, mixing it into your brown rice or quinoa or adding it to the crock pot with some chicken breasts and chicken stock for a quick and easy meal. Another neat tip? Take the leftover chipotle and place into an ice cube tray then pop it into your soups of stocks!

The dressing will become a go to and can also moonlight as a marinade for chicken or fish. The addition of the fresh coriander makes this similar to a chimichurri sauce

You can chipotle in sauce at any grocery store in the Mexican aisle.
