This zesty salad with an Asian twist is delicious with grilled chicken or steak for a great dinner but is flavorful enough on its own to make a yummy lunch.
Depending on the time of year that you make this limes may or may not be in season. If they’re not in season you can use ReaLime, which is 100% juice and imparts decent flavor to the recipe. It’s a great alternative to fresh limes. However, if you happen to have fresh limes on hand, here’s a simple method to ensure that every drop of juice is extracted, avoiding any waste:
Juice from 4 Limes – About 1/3 C.
1/4 C. Vegetable Oil
2 Tblsp. Asian Chili Sauce – Called Sriracha and found in Asian food aisle
2 Tblsp. Soy Sauce
2 Tblsp. Honey
1 Tblsp. Lime Zest (Finely Grated Lime Peel)
1 Head of Romaine Lettuce – Chopped
1 Package of Ramen Noodles – Broken into bits
Optional: Chicken Breast or Steak – Grilled or Fried
Juice limes and add vegetable oil, chili sauce, soy sauce and honey to a bowl. Whisk ingredients together until combined. Pour dressing over the chopped Romain lettuce. Sprinkle the Ramen Noodles over the salad and toss.
Add steak or chicken to salad to make it a meal.
