It’s a good cake. Anyway, back to salad....
Thai dressing from Jamie Oliver’s, The Return of The Naked Chef
4 TBSP fresh lime juice
3 TBSP olive oil
1 TBSP toasted sesame oil
a pinch of sugar
2 inch piece of peeled ginger grated with microplane
1 garlic clove grated with microplane
half a small red chili deseeded and finely chopped
a large handful of chopped fresh herbs: cilantro, basil and mint
Put everything in a jar and shake, shake, shake.
It tasted a little sour right out of the jar so I added a bit more sugar. It still tasted tart to me but I trusted the recipe and dressed my salad. I’m glad I did, it was tasty. The salad I used it on:
Lettuce, arugula, tomatoes, asparagus, yellow pepper, carrots, mango, some of the fresh herbs from the dressing, and warm fake beef strips. Topped with a few salted peanuts this was a great dinner salad. I’ll be making this again.
