Sriracha Vinaigrette Dressing

Smooth and spicy, this sriracha vinaigrette dressing is a quick and easy dressing recipe.  I love it, and it wakes up any tired salad or greens.  Try it on a more robust green like kale or my Charred Chard Salad to stand up to their richer flavors.  It works so well on those types of greens as they tend to have some bitterness to the greens.  The sprightliness of this dressing tends to cut that somewhat.  This dressing is not “chili head” hot, but more of a nice warm flavor.

I am using Tabasco Sriracha Sauce in the recipe.  Obviously, you can use your own favorite, but if you are a Sriracha fan please try out Tabasco’s version.  My resident chili head Zach loves Tabasco Sriracha above all the other brands.

I also use this as a marinade for chicken wings or breasts, or as a dipping sauce for celery and carrots.

Melissa’s Tip-  I always store my vinaigrettes in a small mason jar.  This makes them easy to give a quick shake to redistribute everything before serving.
