"A well-made salad must have a certain uniformity; it should make perfect sense for those ingredients to share a bowl."
-Yotam Ottolenghi, Chef
This technique of using white beans in salad dressings is one introduced to me by a colleague. It works really well, giving a smooth and creamy feel to the dressing and adding a lot of fiber.
This dressing offers a creaminess but with the addition of lime juice and cayenne a bit of additional zing that is great for Southwestern- and Hispanic-flavored recipes.
