Southeast Asian Vinaigrette

I made this today at the restaurant for a Asian rice noodle salad. Its been awhile since I have done it and I forgot how good it is, all the Asian flavors of sour, sweet, spicy and cool. You are going to love it!

1/2 c lime juice
1/2 c rice wine vinegar
3 T Thai fish sauce
1 T soy sauce
1 c vegetable oil
3 T sugar
1/2 jalapeno
1 bunch mint
1 bunch cilantro
1 small knob ginger
3 clove garlic

Blend all ingredient's well, check seasonings, you won't need salt, the fish sauce is salty enough.

Hey Greg, i just randomly stumbled onto your blog. I love to cook and really enjoy fresh, Asian cuisine. I'm curious about the "Asian rice noodle salad" that you mentioned serving this with. Can you tell me more about that, and what other ingredient combinations would you use this vinaigrette on? thanks... robin

for a asian salad use rice noodles, shaved napa cabbage, carrot, cucumber, bean sprouts, chopped peanuts, cilantro, mint, basil and toss with vinagrette. Good as dipping sauce for asian foods like grilled meats, etc.
