The Spicy Coconut Milk Dressing I Love on Everything Lately

We put in the past 7 days on the west shore of Lake Tahoe not much from wherever my spouse and children would stay every summer months when I was younger. The cabins together the lake are larger sized now, the drinking water lower. Teens fling them selves from piers into the distinct, icy, midsection-deep water. When the sky is cloudless, it’s the bluest area conceivable. The 1st point I produced the moment we were settled into our camp was a spicy coconut dressing (sauce?) that would go on *anything* all over the week. It’s a variation on other spicy coconut milk dressings I have manufactured in the past, but this version has a good deal going on with grilled peppers and minced onions. You can see how I applied it listed here, tossed with rice flake noodles, grilled tofu and whichever needed to be used up in the cooler – roasted tomatoes, cilantro, and lemon.
