One of the more frustrating things to find when avoiding nightshades is finding pre-made salad dressings that don’t contain paprika, cayenne pepper, chili powder, or bell peppers. Throw in avoiding gluten and dairy, and it wipes out almost every single option out there.

And for a girl who loves her salads, it becomes a bit of a let down.

Instead, I have to make my own dressings and cross my fingers (and toes) that it will be better than throwing a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar on my salad. Most of the time, the dressings are merely okayyyyy.

The mustard is a little too pronounced.

The vinegar is a wee bit too powerful.

Or it’s only kind of meh for the amount of work it takes.

So when I began to really look for more dressings to bring into my salad-eating rotation, I was intrigued by the idea of pairing honey and lime. The acid of the lime mixed with the sweetness of the honey was super appealing. As were the lack of nightshade spices. This was definitely something I could get behind.

So I tried a reallllly small batch first in case I didn’t like it.

But I did.

So I made another (much larger) batch and have been enjoying it ever since.
