Simple Lime Salad Dressing

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.

You need to try this! It would even make iceberg lettuce dazzling. Simple and packs a punch. I used honey instead of sugar as the sweetener and I bet a little fresh chilli would be brilliant too. Put it on the MUST TRY pile.

Simplicity at its best.
I followed the recipe as written, but had smokey chilli flavoured ground pepper, which I used instead of normal ground pepper. This recipe is so very easy to make so very simple yet delicious. Sweet & tangy
Something a little different and zesty to serve with salad.
Thanks Jan.

This is a delicious dressing. I prepared it as was written and enjoyed it thoroughly. However, I reduced the sugar since then, as I am trying to reduce sugar in my family's diet, and the flavor is still incredible. I also add herbs and crushed red pepper flakes for a zing. I always use left over salad as a sandwich topper. I imagine this would make a wonderful marinade for shrimp or chicken.
