Lemongrass Vinaigrette


From EatingWell:  May/June 1998

This tangy Vietnamese dressing would be a great dipping sauce for fresh spring rolls.

About 1 cup | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes



  1. Combine broth, lemongrass and 2 tablespoons shallot in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 10 minutes. Strain into a small bowl, discarding solids. Add remaining 2 tablespoons shallot, lime juice, soy sauce, fish sauce, sugar and chile oil; whisk to combine. Just before serving, stir in cilantro and mint.
