Ginger Lime Salad Dressing

Is it odd that I'm just posting a recipe for a salad dressing and not a salad? This stuff is dynamite! Ever since I made this dressing weeks ago, I have been eating it like crazy! The dressing was actually part of a steak salad with it's own separate marinade for the meat, but I wasn't crazy about the rest of it, only this dressing. I decided to use it with this Asian Slaw, minus the peppers, instead and was absolutely blown away with how good it was. I've been getting a lot of cabbage in my produce co-op basket and this was a great way to use it up.

Ginger Lime Dressing
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. lime juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. fresh ginger, minced (or grated using a microplane)
1 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced (or 1/2 jalapeno, depending on how spicy you like it)

Combine everything but the jalapeno in a blender and blend until emulsified. Add the jalapeno and pour into a serving container.

  1. sounds delish! how long does it keep in the fridge?

  2. Well, I think everything but the jalapenos would keep several weeks or more. If longevity was your goal, I would add the jalapeno as needed. If not, I think it would keep at least 2 weeks.

  3. I love spicy salad dressings and yours sounds delicious. I'm bookmarking this recipe.

  4. I love trying out new dressings...this sounds really good!

  5. Wasn't this the dressing you gave us when you gave us some extra salad you had? Regardless it was SO good and I WAS going to ask for the recipe. :)

  6. Yes, this was it. I'm glad you liked it.

  7. I make this and use it with my pepper steak and it's amazing! I've got so many compliments when I make it and it!! I love it!

  8. I'm glad you like it. It's my most favorite dressing of all time, I think!
