Chilli lime dressing

Homemade dressings, like most food, is so much better than shop bought. For a start you know what has gone into it, there are no hidden sugars or nasties, and you can increase or decrease the intensity of flavour by making adjustments to the ingredients. You may like to double the amount to use on your salads for the coming week.

  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1cm piece fresh root ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • Juice of 1 and 1/2 large limes
  • 50ml olive oil
  • 1 TBS light muscovado sugar
  • 2 TBS coriander leaves
  • 2 TBS mint leaves
