Basil Lime Vinaigrette

Honey Basil Lime Vinaigrette

  • Author: Krista
  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x


  • 8 fresh basil leaves – chopped very fine
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1/2 cup olive oil – I use Piro
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • Combine all the ingredients in a mason jar and shake vigorously until everything is well combined. If time permits refrigerate 1 hour before use.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings to your preference.


  1. Make ahead and store in an airtight glass container for up to 3 days.
  2. Use a really good, flavorful olive oil. The color should be a deep yellow and smell very fragrant. Skip the light extra virgin olive oil, it’s fine food cooking but not eating raw.
