Quick, easy, and full of flavor, this Thai-inspired Honey Sriracha Lime Dressing is sure to be your new favorite salad topper!
Your salad just did a backflip! It did! I swear! You just weren’t looking…
Though your salad may not flip in the literal sense, you’re sure to over this deliciously tasty dressing. The ingredient combo was inspired by my head over heels obsession with the sweet and sour dressing from my Sweet and Sour Thai Carrot and Cucumber Noodle Salad and the desire to spice things up a little!
In an effort to prevent excessive face-fanning from Sriracha-overload [does such a thing exist?] I limited myself to one manageable teaspoon. I think that’s the perfect starting point!
The zing factor increases with each extra teaspoon added after the fist and I fully expect a few of you to go nuts with it! Add a little, or a lot! Taste as you go, and either way, you’re going to love this sassy salad dressing!

Honey Sriracha Lime Dressing
Gah! Love it so!
Honey Sriracha Lime Dressing
- 3 TBSP fresh lime juice
- 4-5 TBSP white wine vinegar
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 3 TBSP honey
- 1 TBSP sugar or extra honey
- 1 clove garlic (smashed and minced)
- 1 tsp Sriracha plus extra to taste
- ¼ tsp salt
- Roll your lime on the countertop to help release the juices, then slice and squeeze into a small bowl. Measure out 3 TBSP and set aside.
- Combine citrus juice with vinegar, oil, honey, sugar, garlic, Sriracha, and salt and whisk to incorporate. Enjoy!
so. . . how was it!?
Glorious! I’m super in love with this dressing! Paired with cucumbers of any sort, it’s truly a thing of beauty. Refreshing, crisp cucumbers are a perfect match for this dressing. Serve it on a simple sliced cucumber salad with a little chopped cilantro or dill, or simply empty the contents of your crisper drawer into a bowl and have at it!
Since the vinaigrette channels a medley of sweet, sour, and spicy flavors, it will compliment grilled chicken dishes, tofu, fish [ohmygosh salmon! yes!] and even shrimp, so feel free to top your salad with a little protein or serve it up on the side.
You could even go super duper Sriracha crazy and serve it alongside my Sriracha Seared Scallops or Sriracha Almond Crusted Salmon!
I actually never had or tried Sriracha sauce or dressings before. It is about the time to try! Thank you for the recipe 😀
I love this sweet, spicy, citrusy dressing! It’s delicious!!!
