Tandoori Salad Dressing

The Tandoori Dressing combines Mr Salad Dressing and JAH Tandoori Masala for a Beautiful Sweet Red Tandoori Vinaigrette.

Normally the Tandoori Masala has some kick to it when used on Chicken. But in the Salad the heat is really toned down and all the other flavors come out to play. It really is a Delicious Sweet Salad Dressing.

Adding in Tandoori marinated Chicken, will up the heat a bit, but is it ever good.
