This Thai-inspired dressing gets zip from freshly squeezed lime juice and chile-garlic paste. The fish sauce adds umami, while the sugar balances out the vinegar. Try it mixed into rice noodles with cilantro and peanuts for a quick noodle salad, or over grilled fish for a burst of flavor.
What to buy: Look for chile-garlic paste in the Asian section of your supermarket. We like the one made by Huy Fong Foods (with the rooster on the jar).
