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 mentioned morning sickness, 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!
