Ginger-Lime Glaze

Yield: Yields scant 1 cup.

This glaze gives the grapefruit a gingery kick in the Asparagus & Gingered Grapefruit Salad, but it lasts indefinitely and makes a great base for iced or hot tea. It’s also terrific with seltzer water (use about 1/4-cup glaze to 1 cup seltzer and serve cold), so feel free to double the recipe.


  • 3/4 cup roughly chopped or sliced and smashed fresh ginger (from about 6 oz. ginger)
  • Grated zest of 4 small or 3 large limes
  • 3/4 cup tarragon vinegar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
