Sweet Chilli Salad Dressing

Prep time: 5 mins

Servings: 3 /4 cup / 187.5 ml Recipe by: Ketchup With That


1/4 cup / 60 ml sweet Thai chili sauce

1/4 cup / 60 ml rice wine vinegar - or substitute apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup / 60 ml vegetable oil

1 tablespoon / 15 ml lime juice

1/2 teaspoon / 2.5 ml ground ginger - or 1-1/2 teaspoons / 7.5 ml fresh grated ginger


  1. Place all ingredients in a jar. Put on the lid and shake until blended.

  2. Store in the fridge for up to two weeks.


Creamy Tahini Dill Dressing

Prep time: 10 mins

Servings: 3 /4 cup / 187.5 ml Recipe by: Megan Gilmore


1/2 cup tahini

1/4 cup water , plus more as needed to thin

3 to 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 clove garlic , minced

1 teaspoon raw apple cider vinegar

1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt , plus more to taste

1 large handful fresh dill , finely chopped (stems removed)


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the tahini, water, 3 tablespoons of lemon juice, garlic, vinegar, and salt. Use a small whisk to stir it all together until it is creamy. Taste and add another tablespoon of lemon juice if a more tart flavor is desired. (You can also add up to another 1/4 teaspoon of salt, to help make the flavor pop.)

  2. Stir in the fresh dill, and let the dressing rest for at least 15 minutes to let the flavors meld. Serve immediately, or store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up a week.

  3. The dressing will thicken quite a bit once it has been in the fridge, so you may want to thin it out with 1-2 tablespoons of water the next time you serve it.
