A quick, easy and positively delicious recipe for sweet chili dressing. No more boring salads!
So this is totally out of left field, but I think I hate ginger.
Not gingers, since I happen to be of the daywalker variety (fair skin, freckles, dark auburn hair, and only partially soulless), but that sassy, flavorful root type of ginger? I think pregnancy ruined it for me.
Every time I would fall ill to another bout of the plague someone would lovingly tell me to “try eating/drinking/injecting some ginger!” I think for most people it works marvelously, but sadly not for moi.
Thus ginger and I decided to break up for a little while. Despite the grudge I’m nursing, I still ADORE the sweet, super-refreshing ginger dressing they pile on you salad at Japanese restaurants. I wanted to make a dressing like that… but without reaching for my arch nemesis.
Then I found a cucumber in my fridge.
Sweet Chili Dressing
This sweet chili dressing is crazy good! I barely had any dressing to photograph since half of it went in my face the second I unplugged my processor. It feels oddly canabalistic to put cucumber dressing on cucumbers but trust me when I say that’s its worth the controversy.
This dressing is sweet, flavorful, and beyond refreshing!
Make this. Now.
Sweet Chili Dressing
A quick, easy and positively delicious recipe for sweet chili dressing. No boring salads here! Recipe yields 2 large portions or 4 servings at 2 TBSP each.
- Put everything in your food processor or blender and pulse, baby pulse! How easy is that!?
- Since everyone has their own magic ratio of oil to vinegar, feel free to adjust those if you prefer your dressing more or less tart, I find that 2 parts oil to 1 part vinegar is a perfect balance for crisp summer produce.
- Store in the fridge for 4-5 days and enjoy any which way! It's great chilled and at room temperature!
