A tangy dressing that you only need to use a tiny bit of because it's richly flavored. It's fat free and wonderful! If you must, then you can drizzle a little olive oil into your salad after tossing it with this dressing but, honestly, it doesn't need it to make a delicious salad! Also a yummy dressing for sauteed tofu and vegetables. Enjoy!
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 piece fresh ginger (about the size of a garlic clove)
- 3 ounces soy sauce
- 1 1⁄2 ounces red wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 3 drops sesame oil
- 1⁄2 ounce water
- There are 2 options for preparing this dressing.
- You can either whir ingredients in blender, which makes it a little frothy- which I like.
- Or, you can finely mince the garlic and ginger and whip the rest of the ingredients together with a wire whisk.
- Either way, it's fabulous!
- You can easily double this recipe- just keep the 2 to 1 ratio for the garlic and ginger and the soy sauce and vinegar.
This was really good. I served it over chinese noodles, chicken seasoned with curry, romaine lettuce, peanuts, mango and red pepper. I will definatly use this recipe again. I made the dressing, then cooked the chicken, deglazed the pan with the dressing and let the dressing and chicken cool before I made the salad. YUM YUM YUM.
I made this the other day and we've used it twice now. . .once on a lettuce salad with red pepper and sunflower seeds and then again today in a slaw of cabbage, bok choy, carrot, red pepper and green onions (with a piece of seared tuna on top). I liked it better in the slaw as a compliment to the tuna, but we didn't care for it just on the lettuce. It was very salt and the soy really overtook the flavor. I think perhaps I will add some honey to the leftovers to see if that helps. I do enjoy the fresh ginger in here. Thanks for posting!
The soy sauce overwhelmed all other flavors for me. I didn't care for this on salad, but I think it will make a good meat marinade.
