This is a great recipe!!! Great for salads and potato tacos! I substituted white wine vinegar, instead of red (because I was out), and it added a lovely bright, clean flavor- I would definitely recommend it!

Absolutely delicious, the right blend of everything. Great for any salad, chicken, steak, spinace, cobb, etc.

The taste was good but it only makes a couple spoonfuls. It says it makes half a cup but with only 3 TBS vinegar, 3 TBS oil and 2 TBS lime juice there isn't much there.

There are 8 tablespoons in half a cup.
