Homemade Gluten Free Salad Dressing Recipe - Spicy Cucumber Dressing

Published 29 May, 2007

It's salad time in the gluten free food freak's house, and although there are a few ready made gluten free salad dressings in the shops, you can't go wrong with a fresh homemade gluten free salad dressing. This recipe has crunchy cucumber and plenty of spicy heat from chilli, garlic and ginger.

Gluten Free Salad Dressing Recipe - Spicy Cucumber Dressing
Makes about 500ml
225ml rice vinegar
225ml water
125g sugar
3cm piece of ginger root, peeled and sliced
1 garlic clove, peeled and sliced
salt
225g cucumber, grated
6 spring onions, trimmed and thinly sliced
2 chillies, trimmed, seeded and finely chopped

Put the vinegar, water, sugar, garlic and ginger in a pan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 2 minutes, stirring continuously until the sugar dissolved. Add a little salt. Leave to cool.

Put the cucumber, onion and chillies into a sealable container or jar. Strain the cooled sauce through a sieve and stir well. Stores in the fridge for about 7 days.

Try making this homemade gluten free salad dressing and you will be back for more. Spicy, crunchy and juicy, it's great just over leaves or for a more substantial salad, cook and cool some rice noodles, add some chicken or tofu and other crunchy, seasonal veggies. Delicious.
