Cilantro Lime Dressing

I made a Southwest Steak Salad tonight and this dressing was a perfect accompaniment.

Cilantro Lime Dressing

1/2 jalapeño pepper, seeded (the original recipe calls for 1 seeded jalapeño but my family are all wimps)
2 cloves of garlic
3/4 tsp minced fresh ginger
1/3 C fresh lime juice
1 TB honey or agave nectar
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
1/2 C packed cilantro
1/3 C extra virgin olive oil

Place all ingredients in blender and blend well. Best if refrigerated for a couple of hours prior to serving.

The ginger sounds like a strange ingredient, but don't leave it out. It is very subtle, but adds a great flavor.
