  • ¼ cup seasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • ¾ cup + 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  1. Leftovers and Storage: This dressing will last refrigerated for 4-5 days. Be sure to store in an air tight container.
  2. Cilantro Stems: This recipe calls for 2 bunches cilantro without the stems. However, if you have a very high powered blender or food processor, you can use one bunch and use the stems.
