Ginger Lime Dressing
I am looking for some great ways to spruce up lettuce, since I am eating 2 cups of veggies at lunch and dinner. I have recently discovered how inexpensive fresh ginger is and how wonderful it tastes and smells. Yesterday, I was searching for a recipe with ginger and lime since I had both of those in the refrigerator. Recipe after recipe called for oil, honey or mayonnaise. I was looking for a low fat and light dressing. I threw caution to the wind and went to the lab (aka kitchen) and put together a dressing hoping it would turn out!
Fresh Ginger ( I used about 1 inch)
2 tbls of rice vinegar
3 cloves of raw garlic
3 tbls of water
Agave Nectar (to taste)
I mixed all of the above together, mixed on a salad with green leaf lettuce, red peppers, yellow peppers and shredded carrots. The results? THE dressing was FABULOUS!!!! I hated lettuce the day before. I am now in love with it again. My 11 and 7 year old both enjoyed it. Play with the ingredients. Taste as you go along to decide how much more you need. The garlic gave it a nice spice, but could be toned down if desired.
