    Yes, if it is melted, you can. It may make it a little thicker, however.

    How long will it last in the refrigerator?

  • Blendtec

    Yes, it will! And this is great as a salad dressing or marinade. Happy blending!

    Would olive oil work ok? I’m thinking of making this a salad dressing (as well as a marinade)

  • Jade Gilbert

    Why isn’t some of the lime zest added in? Seems like a whole lot of flavour is being thrown out rather than incorporated into the marinade!
