Ginger Lime Cilantro Sauce

Ginger Lime Cilantro Sauce

This sauce is delicious on many things: slaws, vegetables (steamed, boiled, roasted), cucumbers, grilled or broiled eggplant, rice, tofu, seafood and meat. 

Yields about 2/3 cup

1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice, about 2 limes worth

2-inch piece of fresh gingerroot, peeled and finely grated

1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari

1/4 cup rice vinegar

2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

2 cloves garlic, finely minced and then mashed with some salt with the side of a chef’s knife

1 teaspoon sugar or other sweetener

¼ cup finely chopped cilantro leaves and stems

Put all of the ingredients in a small bowl or jar and whisk or shake to combine.  Taste adjust the seasoning with additional sweetener or lime juice. You're looking for a super bright, strong flavor.

Refrigerate for up to 5 days.
