This dressing might seem heavy on the lime juice, but grains and beans can take a more acidic dressing than greens. They seem to absorb the citrusy tang, and I usually find I have to add a little more to achieve the right flavour. If you let the salad sit in the refrigerator before serving, always taste and adjust the seasonings first, including the lime juice. This recipe makes enough to dress the Red Quinoa and Black Bean Salad with Mango.
If you don't care for chunks of garlic, you can use a rasp to achieve consistent fineness.
