Sweet finger lime dressing {vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free}3

Posted on April 15, 2013 by ChristieGluten Free, Meatfree Mondays, Sides, Vegetarian

A short and sweet post today.

Remember those finger limes I picked up at Lennox Head markets last month? Well, this is what I made with some of them.

A totally lush sweet ‘n sour dressing that literally pops in your mouth, due to those juicy little finger lime bits! 

The macadamia oil really adds a nice mouthfeel and the oiliness balances out the tartness of the lime perfectly. But if you don’t have any you could substitute with avocado oil or another oil that doesn’t overpower – olive might be too strong for this.

I thought I had already posted a salad that this would go beautifully with, but alas, a check of my archives shows that it must have got lost in my photos folder! I will dig it up and post in a few days! If you can’t wait that long, try it on this quinoa salad.

Linking up with the gorgeous Veggie Mama for her Meatless Mondays series. Hop on over to her blog as she’s got a wicked frittata recipe today.

    Sounds scrummy indeed! I love using the finger limes in everything but GnT’s- it isn’t nice to chew your drinks :) Have you seen the amazing red coloured finger limes? They are amazing indeed!

      No I haven’t seen the red ones.. will have to find them! Actually, I love the idea of finger lime in a G&T (when not pregnant), will def be giving that a go later in the year :)
