Garlic Ginger Dressing

One of my favorite meals, is also what I consider one of my "lazy" meals. On those days that are a little busy and I do not feel like cooking, this is an easy throw together dinner. Grabbing whatever salad is on sale and a freshly cooked rotisserie chicken, I cut up the chicken and toss it on top of the salad, and Tada! A simple dinner. I am a huge fan of ranch dressing which is typically what I use, but it is nice to mix things up a bit. My boyfriend made this dressing for our "lazy" salad and it was amazing. I always worry that homemade dressings will have no flavor, but not this one. The ginger and garlic is strong but not overwhelming and tastes great with the chicken. I think I have a new favorite dressing. :D

3 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger root
3/4 c. olive oil
1/3 c. rice vinegar
1/2 c. soy sauce
3 Tbsp. orange blossom honey
1/4 c. water

1. In a 1 pint glass jar, combine all ingredients. 
2. Cover the jar with a tight fitting lid, and shake well. 
3. Remove lid, and heat jar in the microwave for 1 minute just to dissolve the honey. 
4. Let cool, and shake well before serving. Store covered in the refrigerator. 
5. Put on something delicious and stuff face!
