This multipurpose sauce is great with a variety of dishes: Brush it on pork loin or salmon before baking, use it as a dipping sauce for dumplings or pot stickers, or try it as a salad dressing. Despite the high fat percentage (mostly because of the olive oil), the sauce is low in fat grams and overall calories.
3/4 cup boiling water
2 teaspoons loose green tea or 2 green tea bags, opened
3 tablespoons minced fresh chives or green onions
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon minced seeded hot red chile
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 garlic cloves, minced
How to Make It
Combine the boiling water and green tea in a bowl; cover and steep for 3 minutes. Remove the tea bags or strain the tea mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl, and discard the tea leaves. Add the minced chives and remaining ingredients to the tea. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.
