Lime, Maple, and Ginger dressing
Lime, Maple, and ginger dressing
Summer is still in full swing, and along with that, fresh fruit in season.
While I love to just eat fruit as is, I love to grill it on the barbecue. If I don't have time for barbecuing, I will just use a grill pan on my stove.
My favorite fruits to grill are pineapple, peaches, watermelon, mango, and cantaloupe. It intensifies the sweetness of the fruit, and takes it to a new level.
I decided to see if I could elevate that level even more. I decided to make a simple dressing to pour over the warm fruit. I am simply going to say, level up!
Here is the recipe. You can make while the fruit is grilling.
You will need a small blender also.
1/4 c fresh lime juice (2 limes worth)
1/4 c maple syrup (or honey if you are not vegan)
3 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp. fresh ground ginger
1/4-1/2 tsp. chipotle powder or cayenne pepper
zest of one lime
Place all ingredients in a blender, and blend for a few seconds.
You can put on the fruit while it is grilling, or after, or both. I like to do both. Just make sure to pour it all over the fruit after it comes off the grill.
I hope you give this a try, and that you enjoy it.
