Pepperoncini Lime Vinaigrette

Pepperoncini Lime Vinaigrette recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen


This tangy dressing is perfect for a light summer salad. The finely diced pepperoncinis give a slight bite and the dill compliments them nicely. I served this dressing over a simple tossed garden salad.

I knew that my husband would love this dressing, because he eats pepperoncinis every chance he gets. What I didn't expect was for one of my sons to go crazy over this. He tasted the dressing; then poured it all over his salad and ate every single bite. Between my husband and one son, this dressing disappeared in just a couple of days.

  2. My husband is a pickle juice fanatic! The brine is his favorite part. I will make this one for him - so he says thanks! I love pepperoncini with salads so I know I'll enjoy this too. Thanks for another great dressing recipe Mary. You should put this one in your cookbook - dressings and smoothies :)

  4. I've only experienced pepperoncinis in Italian salads, but they seem like a perfect pairing with lime.

  5. You hit the nail on the head with this one. I love a little bite to my salads. I wonder if it would also work with jalapenos, too?

  9. My husband is the same way with pepperoncinis taking my portion and his to put on salads. I'm sure he would love this. Using the brine for part of the vinaigrette doesn't sound too appealing to me but if even your son loved this it must be good.

    Looking forward to trying this.
