This green onion and ginger vinaigrette is as versatile as it is tasty. Use it on your favorite salad, vegetable or protein as a unique, easy to make enhancer.
Green onions are a sneaky ingredient as it adds flavor and a bit of crunch. The dressing is fresh and light, but packs a bit of a punch with the fresh ginger that adds a bit of happiness to your dish.
I slightly tweaked a recipe from the restaurant Gjelina for this sauce which I make once a month and use it on multiple different recipes.
- Olive oil
- Rice vinegar
- Lime, juiced
- Green onions
- Garlic cloves
- Kosher Salt
- Black pepper

Vinaigrette tips and considerations
Use fresh ingredients, particularly with the garlic and ginger. Ground powder versions add convenience but you lose on taste quite a bit
If necessary agave, brown sugar or maple syrup can be substituted for honey.
