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. Read More

the only reason I gave it two stars instead of one is I'm going to see what transpires in 8 or more hours but I thought it was awful. way too much soy sauce!! Unless I did something wrong but I went over and over it. I did halve the recipe because I didn't need or want 7 cups of dressing for one person. It might have been okay with like about 1/3 of the soy sauce it called for but I'm sort of mad that I wasted 7 limes and a bunch of Realime juice. A couple of people suggested decreasing the oil. wait, what? for a half a recipe there was only 1/3 cup of oil. I was thinking it could've used more. Is there a typo in the recipe? I was so disappointed. Read More

You can easily cut back WAY back on the oil by the way. Cheers! Read More

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 and any other thing that strikes my fancy. This dressing gets better with time so if spicy is not your thing start with a lesser amount of red pepper flakes. My entire family loves it and requests it at almost every meal. - not breakfast as yet - One daughter who lives out of state heard how great it is and requested the recipe after her sister told her how good this turned out. Thanks Amanda for a constant way to get salad and veggies on the table with loads of flavor. Read More

Tasty dressing. A tip; if you don't need 7 cups of dressing (!), I scaled the recipe to 9 servings without too many weird fractions. I subbed garlic powder for fresh garlic. Also I used bottled lime juice, which fresh is no doubt tastier, but the reason I chose this recipe was to avoid going to the store :) Thanks for the recipe, Amanda Sheumaker! Read More

I marinated steak with this and it was so good! Instead of crushed red pepper I substituted sliced habanero peppers which added a great kick to the sauce Read More

There was another review that suggested that the oil should be cut way back so I made two small batches to test. Definitely cut it back. The one made according to the recipe was way too oily and the way with less was much better. I marked down the recipe because of this issue Read More

I normally prefer creamy dressings over vinegrettes but this was quite good. My boyfriend was crazy about it. I did add the juice from a quarter of an orange to sweeten it up a little. I love making dressings that are tasty and unusual and this fit the bill. Read More
