Sweet & Spicy Dressing

Recipe by RecipeMonster

This is a real flavorful salad dressing, also good to use as a dip for chicken. I use it in some of my tortilla wraps. I like carrots cooked in this dressing and served hot or cold.

I really savored this sauce -- there's nothing else like it that I've come across. Very versatile and MACRO-flavor. I'd say it's best use for me will be with something that is normally fairly bland, like home made chicken tenders, which is how I'm going to use it first. A little bit will go a long way. I can see that already having tasted it after it chilled for a couple of hours. I'm okay with the current portion of liquid smoke (at first, it seemed like a lot to me too!) -- I used Colgin natural hickory brand and it's really just right. I MIGHT go a a half-portion on the curry powder next time (curry has that overwhelming flavor), but the current measure is just fine as is everything else. This dressing has "sneaky heat", in my opinion from the red chili powder (I use a variety from India), but I like that level of spicyness. I made one deviation -- I ran the sauce thru the food processor, mostly to grind the green chili bits, so my sauce/dressing is really smooth and stored in a carafe in the fridge. This one is a keeper. I plan to marinate a pork roast with it at some point and see how that goes. Thanks for posting this one RecipeMonster! Good Job!
