After a weekend of eating baking cookies, I figured I needed to have something a little more nutritious than another dinner of butter cookies.
I decided to keep it simple with a little salad. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any dressing and after making my own sesame ginger variety, I made a decision to never buy another bottle again.
Right now I’m in a lime phase. After the lime cookies, I want all things lime-flavored. Fortunately for me, I had a few left over from this weekend’s cooking and baking exploits and decided to use them to make a citrusy vinaigrette.
** This isn’t a creamy dressing. It looks that way because I made it entirely in my Ninja. **
