Let's Make It
Whisk all ingredients except oil in medium bowl until blended.
Add oil slowly, whisking constantly after each addition until well blended.
Savor every bite of this tasty dressing. Each 2-Tbsp. serving goes a long way on flavor.
Combine 1 each drained 15-oz. can green beans, kidney beans and wax beans in medium bowl. Add enough Southwestern Vinaigrette to moisten all ingredients; mix lightly. Refrigerate several hours. Makes 8 servings.
Pour 1/4 cup Southwestern Vinaigrette over 1 beef flank steak (1 lb.) or 4 small boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 lb.); turn to evenly coat meat with vinaigrette. Set aside. Pour additional 1/4 cup Southwestern Vinaigrette over combined 1 sliced onion and 1 cup bell pepper strips; stir. Refrigerate meat and vegetables 1 hour to marinate. Heat grill to medium heat. Remove meat and vegetables from marinade; discard marinade. Grill meat until done. Meanwhile, grill vegetables until crisp-tender. Remove all ingredients from grill. Cut meat across the grain into thin slices. Place meat over greens-covered plate; top with bell peppers. Drizzle with additional 1/4 cup Southwestern Vinaigrette. If desired, also top with chopped fresh jalapeño peppers and deep-fried tortilla strips. Makes 4 servings.
Place bowl on damp towel to help prevent it from slipping when you whisk in the oil.
