• ¼ cup fresh lime juice

• 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

• ¼ cup fish sauce

• 2 tablespoon white sugar

• 2 large garlic cloves, microplaned or finely minced

• ½ teaspoon grated ginger root

• 1 teaspoon Thai or red chili, seeded and very finely chopped

• 1 carrot, shaved with vegetable peeler

• 1 cup cucumber, shaved with vegetable peeler

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Combine the fresh lime juice, rice vinegar, fish sauce, white sugar, minced garlic, grated ginger, and finely chopped chili in a small jar and shake until well combined. Set aside for 10 minutes.
