One of my favorite spring and summertime dressings. I love combining this dressing with salads that have fresh greens in them and fruits. Whenever I make a salad to go with this vinaigrette I keep it simple with fresh greens (spinach, kale, lettuce, arugula etc), fruit (strawberries, blueberries, papaya etc), and healthy fats (slivered almonds, pecans, walnuts etc). Choose one of each or combine for more variety!

1. Crush garlic, ginger, and green chili together with a mortar and pestle, or mince. Add the olive oil to that and mix well. Let sit for 15 minutes.
2. Combine the rest of the ingredients with the olive oil mixture. Mix together well.
