Citrus-Basil Dressing

This recipe was inspired by a recipe that I found on  The author received a recipe for Pineapple Citrus Chicken with Lime-Basil Glaze while touring the Maui Pineapple farms.  I couldn't resist altering the recipe slightly to form a Dressing which is amazing on salads, gogoma, chicken or just licked right off of your fingers!

Citrus-Basil Dressing

1/3 cup fresh orange juice
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tbsp minced red onion
1/2 tsp finely grated lime zest
1 clove garlic, pressed or finely minced
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup rice oil
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh basil
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
1/4 C honey
  1. In small bowl, combine orange juice, lime juice, red onion, lime zest, garlic and salt.
  2. Stir to dissolve salt.
  3. Add honey,  2 tablespoons finely chopped basil and 2 tablespoons parsley.
  4. Slowly whisk in rice oil.
  5. Pour over a bowl of salad greens, toss, and top with sliced pineapple.

Kitchen Tip:  Double or even triple this recipe. 
You'll be glad you did!
