Thai Salad Dressing

This is, by far, my favorite salad dressing.  Enjoy!

First, get a Good Seasonings dressing container, as it will have the oil/water/vinegar measurements on the side.

Ingredients:

  • Juice of two limes
  • Rice vinegar
  • Canola oil
  • 1 large pressed garlic clove
  • 2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • a dash (or two) of tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of honey (you  might want to heat the honey first so it’s easier to mix in)

What I Do:

  • Fill the dressing container with lime juice until it hits the Vinegar line.  I find that two limes usually does this perfectly
  • Fill the container with rice vinegar until it hits the Water line.  Following me?
  • Fill the container with canola oil until it hits the Oil line.
  • Press in the garlic.
  • Add everything else.
  • Shake VIGOROUSLY while holding the cap firmly.
  • Shake before use.

To really drive all the flavors home, add chopped cucumber, cilantro, green onions, and a pinch of mint to your salad!
