You don’t always have to dress your salad with a classic oil and vinegar vinaigrette. Try tossing it with this warm dressing made with Serrano chile and fresh ginger.


  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Holland chile, minced
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Put the oil into a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Once it begins to shimmer, add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes, then stir in the chile, ginger, cumin and turmeric and cook for an additional 2 minutes more.
  2. Add the lemon juice to the chile mixture and then sprinkle with a few pinches of salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
