  • 1.

    To make the dressing, place the water, chilli, garlic and ginger in a food processor, add the creamed coconut and blitz well before scraping down and repeating for about a further 30 seconds. Add the herbs and rind, blitz well again before adding the limejuice and scraping down and seasoning with sea salt and mix for a further half a minute. If the mix becomes too cold, warm it slightly for 10 seconds in a microwave before serving.
