  • Zest one of the limes and set aside. This zest will be used later but you want to do this before juicing the limes. Afterwards really isn't an option.

  • Now add the 4 teaspoons of serrano pepper and the 2 limes, juiced, to a small container and set it aside. Let it infuse depending on how hot you want the dressing. About 5 minutes should give you a decent amount of heat and body. If you want more, let it set for longer.
