Need a quick fix to dress your salad tonight? How about something a bit off the beaten path? I decided to get a little creative this time with the salad dressing, and thought I would try throwing in some green curry paste, that I had in my fridge. It looks like this, the kind you use in Thai or perhaps Viet Namese dishes.
You can find it in the international foods aisle, or at your Asian grocers. But look, this is the way of the Recipeless Cook. So don't marry yourself to green curry paste. Use red curry paste if you have it! Ok, you probably don't have that either.... well, let's have a look-see... what do you have? Indian style curry paste? No? How about just curry powder then? Whatever it is, the idea is to spice things up a little! (Not too much, just a little....)
1/2 t. Green curry paste
1 T. soya sauce
1 T. lemon (or lime) juice
3 T extra virgin olive oil
a few cloves of garlic, mashed with salt (see "How To Mince Garlic" on these pages)
After you have nicely minced and mashed your garlic, throw it in a small mason jar, add the rest of the ingredients, and... rock n' roll!
