Chili Lime Dressing

Quick Dressing for a Sweet Spicy Flavor.  It's funny that it reminds me of Thai and Vietnamese food, the mint is what throws me off to thinking it's a Vietnamese flavor, but the kick reminds me of Thai.  But I love both country's cuisines so it's a win for me!  Also, to give it an extra ounce of love, use some lemongrass :)

Chili Lime Dressing


  • 1/4 cup Fish Sauce  (if you don't know what fish sauce is click here)
  • 1 tbsp Honey (Or you can use brown or white sugar, I just prefer honey)
  • 1 Lime, Juiced (I suggest using a half a lime first, and increase to preferred taste)
  • 3 cloves Chopped Garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp Chopped Ginger
  • 5 leaves Chopped Mint
  • 1 tsp Red Chili Pepper Flakes (Preferably a product from Thailand)
  • 1tbsp Sesame Oil


  1. Don't get frustrated, but this is the tricky part.  Depending on what you are using the dressing for, some of the ratio content changes and it just might change according to your taste preference.  For example, when i'm making a hot stir-fry dish, I increase the honey and use less lime juice due to the acidity (2:1).  But if, I'm doing a salad, I add more sesame oil with a mixture of vegetable oil compared to the fish sauce and lime juice (1-acidity:3-fat).
