    Creamy Chipotle Vinaigrette

  • 1 cup fresh-squeezed orange juice(from 2 large oranges)
  • 1 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons minced chipotle pepper
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tables. ground cumin
  • 3 tablesp. fresh lime juice(about 1 1/2 limes)
  • salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
  • In a small saucepan combine the orange juice & vinegar. Bring to a boil over high heat; then, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer vigorously until the liquid is reduced by 2/3, about 25 minutes.

    Remove the liquid from the heat, and allow to cool to room temperature. Add the mayonnaise and whisk together until well blended. Add the chipotle, cilantro, cumin and lime juice; whisk together well. Season with salt and pepper.
    Yield: about 1 2/3 cups.

    As a salad dressing: Toss with a Mexican-flavored salad made with romaine lettuce, sliced avocado, tomato, red onion & cornbread croutons.

    As a cold sauce: Drizzle over grilled chicken or fish, spoon over baked sweet potatoes, or paint on bbq ribs.
