Chipotle Salad Dressing

I love Chipotle. It’s where I go when I want a cheat day. And by “cheat day,” I mean that I have rice. Living life on the edge! This is basically what’s going through my head those days:


So when I tried their new salad dressing, I was hooked. Except that it was a bit too sweet and a bit too salty for my taste. Also, they used adobo sauce – which sometimes contains gluten due to “natural flavors.” There was only one thing to be done. Make my own. So I did. And it’s fabulous and my new favorite. I really want to try it as a wings marinade next – tailgating season is right around the corner!

Chipotle Salad Dressing

  • ¼ cup Raw Honey
  • ½ cup Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Adobo Seasoning
  • 1 tbsp Dried Oregano
  • ¾ tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 1/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Mix all ingredients in a blender or using a hand mixer, slowly drizzling in oil at the end. Or, do what I do and put everything in a mason jar, seal with a rubber-rimmed lid and shake it like crazy until the honey is dissolved. Note: Ingredients will separate between use and it can be stored in a sealed container for up to two weeks in the fridge.

      Adobo seasoning is a seasoning blend that is nice and smoky! You can buy a pre-made seasoning blend from stores like Whole Foods or, can make your own:

      1/4 cup sweet paprika
      3 tablespoons ground black pepper
      2 tablespoons onion powder
      2 tablespoons dried oregano (preferably Mexican)
      2 tablespoons ground cumin
      1 tablespoon chipotle chile powder
      1 tablespoon garlic powder

      Mix well and store in a sealed jar for future use.
