Chilli and Lime Dressing | Recipe

After recently trying an amazing chilli and lime dressing, but not wanting to pay £5 for a bottle of it, I decided to have a go at making my own.
It was my husbands birthday last week and I wanted to make a 3 course meal.
We went for lamb shanks for the main and Eton Mess for dessert, so I wanted the starter to be simple, easy and quite light.
I opted for prawns and thought it was a great excuse to try and make this dressing. The only ingredient we had to buy was a lime as the other two we have as a regular cupboard essential.

You need:

1 lime
Olive Oil (I use Extra Virgin)
Sweet Chilli Sauce (I used Blue Dragon Sweet Chilli Dipping Sauce)

It's simple. Super simple.

Half the lime, squeeze out the juice into a bowl.
Add a shot glass (yes, that was my genious way of measuring) of sweet chilli dipping sauce and mix.
Then add 2 shot glasses of olive oil. Mix again.
Then enjoy served with prawns and lettuce, with bread, or a salad.
