Sake Lime Vinaigrette – 20 Calories
The Grand Wailea Resort and Spa in Maui offers a legendary menu of Pacific Rim cuisine. This dressing is served with its Ahi Tuna entrees, but it melds nicely with any lighter-fare seafood salad because a little bit goes a long way, which is usually the case with intensely flavored, sharp flavors. You’ll use less if your tastebuds are “alive” with sufficient flavor. We like this drizzled over sashimi, sushi, and canned albacore tuna flakes, in place of mayonnaise.
