If you love honey and lime, you will not find anything better than ‘Ohana Honey Lime Dressing. It used to be served at Disney’s ‘Ohana dinner at the Polynesian Resort. While you will no longer find it on a Disney menu, it is super easy to make at home.
Dinner at ‘Ohana – Polynesian Resort
You can smell the mixture of flame and roasting meat even before you notice the giant oak fire pit in the middle of the dining room.
Waiters (“Cousins” here at ‘Ohana) hurry between tables, delivering skewers of meat, platters of fried dumplings, and plates of carmel laden banana bread pudding.
I’m here for the SALAD.
I nibble on a piece of sweet pineapple bread as I wait for the salad bowl. It arrives and I add a heaping pile to my plate. I’ve been waiting all day for this salad – a tantalizing combination of sweet and tart, it compliments the crunchy salad perfectly.
I sit back, take a bite, and um….something is wrong with my salad.
A brief conversation with my new “Cousin”, Kevin, confirms that the beloved ‘Ohana Honey Lime Salad Dressing has gone the way of Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.
Not so Magical.
Magical Moment Saved
Fortunately, this is a recipe Disney World is more than happy to share.
Not only is it super easy to make, you can have Honey Lime Dressing anytime you want. No vacation required. Super Magical!

This recipe is for the beloved Honey Lime Dressing they used to serve at the Walt Disney World Polynesian Resort, at the ‘Ohana dinner.
- 1/4 cup of a white onion
- 1/2 cup cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 1/2 cup honey (hint – spray the inside of the measuring cup with cooking spray, so the honey pours out easily)
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup olive or canola oil
- Place all ingredients except the oil into food processor and blend until everything is smooth and frothy.
- Slowly incorporate 1 cup of oil into the mixture and continue to blend until well incorporated.
This dressing can be used over a salad, broccoli slaw, or even as a veggie dip…anything you want to add pure deliciousness to!
IF there are any leftovers, place in a mason jar and refrigerate. The ingredients will separate, so give the jar a good shake before you use it, to reincorporate the oil.
