This dressing gets extra punch from garam masala, an Indian spice blend that may include black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, nutmeg and coriander seeds. You can find it at Indian markets and most large supermarkets. In a pinch, just add another teaspoon of curry powder. For the citrus juice in this recipe, you will need 3 to 4 limes or 2 lemons.
