Asian Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by DangerBun

This is simple to throw together, light and tangy. I often vary the ingredients, using honey or orange juice instead of sugar, adding wasabi powder -- whatever I'm in the mood for. The joy of cooking is being creative! If you wish to substitute the oil, use a bland vegetable oil, extra virgin olive oil or "light" olive oil. Regular olive oil is too strong for this recipe.

I didn't add the scallions or sesame seeds at the end, and I used 1/2t of dried ginger, but this was YUMMY! Served over a salad of field greens, chicken tenderloins, avocado, and mandarin oranges.
