Lime Salad Dressing

This is a tangy salad dressing with a kick.  I read, in one of my chefs books, that a perfect salad dressing is made of three equal parts of acid, base and sweet. I believe this to be true and you can alter this basic recipe to suit your palate. After all, cooking is all about experimenting and having fun. Here is the basic recipe, enjoy and remember to make it your own.


  • 3 tablespoon of lime juice
  • 3 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 3 tablespoon of white sugar
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Salt to taste



  1. Mix all ingredients well.
  2. Refrigerate. Best when it has time to have the flavours blend. Approximately an hour.
