This restaurant-quality salad combines crisp, clean flavors and textures. Add more ginger to the dressing if you like.

  1. Place lime juice and zest in a large jar with a lid. Add garlic, onion, and ginger; mix. Add mustard, honey, and vinegars; mix. Add oils, plus salt and pepper to taste. Cover jar and shake vigorously until all ingredients are combined. Refrigerate a couple of hours to give all flavors a chance to come together. (Makes scant 1 cup.)
