Chili Lime Vinaigrette Dressing

Rated as 4.62 out of 5 Stars

"I got this recipe from a lady who always serves it with a grilled salmon and leafy greens salad, using feta crumbles, red onions, and carrots. If you don't want it as spicy, you can cut back on the red pepper flakes but we love it just the way it is."

If you want to make a smaller amount the recipe breaks down to 15 parts lime juice, 7 parts soy, 4 parts brown sugar, 3 parts olive oil, 1 part garlic, and 1 part red pepper flakes.

This is the BEST dressing yet. I've marinated chicken and fish with it before grilling. Put it on "bowl" meals of salad greens, pinto beans, spanish rice, tomatoes, red onion, pico de gallo, a...

This has become a family favourite, a go to recipe. I use it on the sweet kale salad from Costco. I make up enough for several servings, like a bottle of dressing worth, and we use it up quickly.
