Asian Style Salad Dressing
By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime
My recipe of the day is for an Asian style salad dressing.
There are several types of dressings I like to make with Asian food- ginger dressing, miso dressing, and then there is this one.
Use a Quality Teriyaki Sauce
This Asian dressing is very simple and utilizes teriyaki sauce- and by that I mean for you to use a quality one (and by that I mean one that has both good flavor and consistency- not watery and thin). I have one I worked up some years ago for grilling and have used on my Hawaiian burgers.
I also feel comfortable using one of the bottled dressings like Kona Coast or a couple other brands that you can shake the bottle and see it is nicely thick and those also have sesame seeds added. If you make mine from scratch, add a bit of sesame seeds because this dressing likes that sesame flavor.
As to what kind of things to put in the salad- that is easy going so I will leave it up to you. In mine, in addition to the lettuces, I have added pea shoots, almonds, a little bit of carrot, sugar snap peas, and cherry tomatoes.
The pea shoots are off season now but you could certainly mix in any fresh sprouts or microgreens. Just don’t use canned sprouts- those are nasty. Another option for a little bit of Pacific flavor would be to add some bits of fresh pineapple, or perhaps something like roasted Brussies. Let your imagination soar!
