Evil Noodle Salad Dressing

I love, love, love a spicy steak salad, or rather, an Evil Jungle Salad from Houston’s, or a spicy Asian Noodle Salad … the names can go on & on. These are generally just a bed of greens, some thin noodles, basil, mint and cilantro and thin sliced steak served with a nice spicy dressing. Some, like the one from Houston’s counterbalance the spiciness with avocado and mango slices which is delicious, but not mandatory. I am only giving the dressing recipe as the salad should be how YOU prefer…

1 lime
½ cup olive oil
½ cup soy sauce
3 tbs sesame oil
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 ½ tbs ground ginger or 3 tbs fresh grated
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Red pepper flakes to desired hotness
Cilantro, if available, chopped. Do NOT add until you are ready to serve the dressing, otherwise it gets icky.

Squeeze lime to get as much juice as possible into wide mouth jar that has a tight fitting lid. Add rest of ingredients, put lid on and shake, shake, shake. Add cilantro to jar and shake right before serving. I do not normally refrigerate as it firms up but I suppose you could/should.
