Coriander Dressing

image

This is one of those fab dressings that goes with so many things, we have it poured over roast chicken pieces, salads, barbecued meat and roast vegetables.

I delight in the fact that some of the vibrancy of the sauce comes from a sneaky handful of spinach leaves, what the boys don’t know won’t hurt them!

Ingredients

a large bunch of coriander, around 70g

1 cup firmly packed baby spinach

1 green chilli, deseeded

1 garlic clove, peeled and roughly chopped

juice of 1 lime

60-80mls olive oil

salt and pepper

ย Method

In a food processor, whizz the coriander, spinach, chilli and garlic.

Pour in the lime juice and with the motor running pour in enough oil to get it to the consistency that you are after.

  1. Cilantro is such a great herb. Many people don’t care for it, but it is a huge part of San Diego style Mexican food.

    Here we call the leaves cilantro, but the dried seeds coriander.

    1. Hi Joshua, thanks for letting me know about your variations with coriander/cilantro, I’m a huge fan of Mexican food having lived in Texas for a while, I had never seen so many varieties of chillies in my life! ๐Ÿ™‚ Ros
