Perk up any salad with this Southwestern dressing. It's great on hearty, main-course salads with grilled chicken, seared tuna or smoked tofu.
1 item(s) canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, seeded, or less to taste
4 tsp fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp chopped walnuts
1 Tbsp walnut oil
1 Tbsp water
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp table salt

Place the ingredients in a food processor or a mini food processor; process until smooth, scraping down the sides of the canister once or twice. Yields about 1 1/2 tablespoons per serving.

Look for canned chipotles in adobo sauce in the Latin-American aisle of your market.
