Jalapeno Mint Vinaigrette Recipe: A Cool Salad Dressing Recipe With a Hint of Heat

When you start growing mint in your yard, you will always grow mint in your yard. It becomes invasive, kind of like a weed. But if you find ways to use mint, you won't mind. Like this refreshing jalapeno mint vinaigrette recipe.

This salad dressing recipe is inspired by a local steakhouse. They have an amazing kale salad that they drizzle with a jalapeno mint vinaigrette. Obsessed with the salad (recipe coming soon!), I created this easy vinaigrette recipe. Use it on salads, drizzle it over grilled chicken breast, fish or shrimp, or use it as a marinade for proteins or vegetables
