Madras Chutney Salad Dressing with Lime
The following recipe is great served over a plain mesclun or mixed green salad. Its tanginess also makes it good for drizzling over a spinach, walnut, and apple salad. You can even use this mouthwatering chutney salad dressing as a marinade for chicken. Either use commercial chutney or make your own by finely chopping some fruit.
Sunflower oil is a nice oil to use in this chutney salad dressing recipe, or you can use another mild-flavored oil. Do not use olive oil here – the flavor is too strong and does not suit the recipe. One of the best things about this dressing is how fast you can make it. If your fruit chutney is prepared, you simply have to crush a garlic clove and add everything to a bowl, ready to be mixed. This easy salad dressing can be prepared in five minutes.
The typical flavors of India in this dressing make it really tasty and whether you serve this with poppadums or chips, have it with your favorite salad, or even add a spoonful to your plate when you are enjoying rice, naan bread and an Indian curry recipe. All you need to do to make this dressing is combine the ingredients, and then you will be rewarded with this flavorful dressing. This recipe makes two-thirds of a cup, which is sufficient for 6 servings, but you can double the recipe if you are making this for a crowd or if you want it to last a few days.
- 2 tablespoons fruit chutney
- 1 crushed garlic clove
- ½ cup sunflower oil
- ½ teaspoon Madras curry powder
- Juice of a lime
- Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and blend well.
- The heavier chutney tends to sink to the bottom of the bowl so if you are not using this chutney salad dressing immediately you will need to re-stir it before serving.
This Indian inspired salad dressing makes a real change from other salad dressing recipes, so if you are interesting in making something brand new, consider this one. Whether you serve this with chips or poppadums, or have a spoonful with your curry and rice, or even enjoy it drizzled over a baby leaf salad, the flavors in this are sure to please your palate. The chutney adds a sweet, fruity taste which contrasts well with the lime juice, garlic and curry powder. Sunflower oil helps bind the ingredients together and even out the consistency.
