This is a variation on something I saw somewhere. It is crisp and fresh. I made it to go on a fresh spinach and mango salad. It would be good on rice or over fish. You could make variations with grapefruit, lemon or lime.
We recently stayed in a villa in Bali. The cook made this dressing a couple of times to go over a salad of mixed greens tomatoes and cucumber. She included mint in the salad-not the dressing. Her recipe was actually just equal quantities of lime juice, white (not palm) sugar, and olive oil, garlic and slat and pepper, so it's super easy to make enough for 1 or 12.
Really nice and clean. Since I posted this I have learned that it is known by some as cilantro chutney. Cilantro/Mint Chutney 2:1 all the way to 1:2 ratio. Some people add a tablespoon to 1/3 cup plain yogurt. Some people add a bit of white vinegar.
Recipe by Our Best Bites - You'll just need a few ingredients that you may already have on hand--canola oil (olive oil was too strong), rice or white wine vinegar (regular white vinegar would also work), lime juice, sugar, Kosher salt, lots of garlic, and cilantro.
California Pizza Kitchen has a Thai Crunch salad that combines the Thai Peanut Dressing and a Lime Cilantro Dressing. I prefer to use only the recipe for the Thai Peanut Dressing, found in the CPK cookbook, to accompany my Chinese Chicken Salad (cabbage, romaine, steak or chicken, crushed peanuts, shredded carrots, pepper and cucumbers). It is absolutely DELICIOUS and very easy to make. I usually double the recipe and store any leftover dressing in the fridge.
This is a recipe from "Phoenix Home and Gardens Magazine". I like to make it once in a while for a green salad - it's delicious, healthy and so simple to make. Zest the lime a little if you want extra flavor. Adjust the cilantro to your tastes.
This dressing has wonderful flavour with virtually no fat. Try this on a Spinach and Strawberry salad....it will blow your mind and your tastebuds. Taken from her 'Heart Smart' cookbook, she notes: "This dressing can also be made with other mild vinegars such as raspberry, sherry, Champagne or a good red wine vinegar." NOTE: after several reviews, I'm going to adjust the water amount to 1/2 - 1 cup. Thanks for the suggestions everyone. :)
This appeared in the Montreal Gazette after some one requested a printed version of the recipe they tried several years ago. There really is only three instructions to this recipe so it is really simple to make.
