Spicy Honey Vinaigrette

Spicy Honey Vinaigrette has a flavor profile that delivers a subtle punch without TKOing the taste buds. Cider vinegar, honey, soy sauce, garlic & ginger. Simply SatedA long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…. in the land where I had young skin and 20/20 vision, there were few varieties of salad dressings from which to choose, and Spicy Honey Vinaigrette was never a glimmer of an idea in anyone’s thought bubble.

Simply SatedItalian, Thousand Island, Blue Cheese and French were the main choices available. There were also a few specialty dressings like Western, Dorothy Lynch and Roquefort, but nothing compared to the varieties on the market today. I don’t think I had even heard of Ranch Dressing until high school or possibly college.  Now, in 2015, we have too many options. I have found myself staring at row after row of salad dressing in the grocery store and stressing over which one to buy.   Should I try Italian, or Robusto Italian, or Bruschetta Italian, or maybe Balsamic Italian, or Mediterranean Italian?  Whew! It is exhausting.

Simply SatedOver the past several years, I added homemade salad dressings to my cooking repertoire, and I’m so happy I did. Not only does making my own salad dressings help de-stress grocery shopping, it also makes it possible to control the salt content and add a ton of fresh flavor to my salads.

Two of my homemade dressings that I love are Basil Green Goddess and Poppyseed Sweet and Sour.

    I love a tasty Asian dressing, you can do so much with it. This dressing sounds delicious and that salmon looks mouth watering.

      Thank you, Dan. I Love this dressing and actually brushed in on grilled chicken breasts yesterday - so, so good. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment and to comment so beautifully.

    This is a terrific dressing! I added a little extra SRIRACHA for our taste. It was great on a simple salad paired with steak and mashed sweet potatoes. Thanks for the recipe!

      Susie Gall
      Thank you, Rebecca, and thanks for stopping by Simply Sated. I think the extra Sriracha would be delicious, too.
