Curried Salad Dressing with Lemon Juice
This recipe has a mild curry flavor which is lovely with chicken, so you might want to serve it over a chicken salad. Try combining lettuce, spinach, diced tomato, carrot, steamed asparagus and alfalfa, as well as diced cooked chicken, for a great chicken salad recipe. Red bell pepper, cucumber slices and sweet onion slices would also be good in such a salad. This dressing features garlic, lemon and mustard as well as a pinch of curry powder, to give it more depth. You can use hot or mild curry powder in this, adding more if you want a spicier finish. Contrasting creamy sauces or dressings with spicy ingredients is usually good because the creaminess cuts through the spice, giving a soft and delicious texture and flavor.
You can make this curried salad dressing in a blender or food processor or you can make it the old-fashioned way, whisking by hand. After all, that is how your grandmother and great-grandmother would have made their delicious salad dressing recipes. You can tinker with the ingredients in this one, if you want to, swapping the lemon juice for lime juice (use freshly squeezed juice for the best results) or adding more garlic or mustard powder.

Are you tired of the same old Ranch, blue cheese or Thousand Island dressing every time? If you are in the mood for something new and exciting, try this tasty curried dressing. It is amazing over shredded cabbage with raisins and chicken, or try it over baby leaves.
