Quick salad dressing recipe...posted upon request. I've seen this with the addition of a little bit of white miso, so you may want to experiment with this.
- 1⁄4 cup chopped onion
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, roasted lightly
- 1 tablespoon grated ginger
- 1 -2 tablespoon minced umeboshi or 1 -2 tablespoon neri-ume (comes in a little squirt bottle)
- 1⁄2 cup oil
- 1⁄4 cup rice vinegar or 1⁄4 cup ume vinegar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons lemon juice or 1 1⁄2 teaspoons lime juice
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons sugar
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Puree and chill.
Very quick and flavorful dressing. Nice tang from the umeboshi, vinegar and lime juice, and the onion and all the rest add to the nice balance of flavors. Had this with a salad of chopped bok choy, celery, and zucchini. This went together so fast! I just put a chunk of onion and the rest in my little blender and whizzed it up. I used tahini because I didn't have any sesame seeds (probably made mine a bit thicker or smoother), maybe half a packet of stevia instead of sugar, and reduced the oil (I used macadamia nut oil) to 2 T, which is just my personal preference for low oil dressings, like Roosie. Can't wait for dinner so I can have some more salad with this dressing! Thanks Akikobay!
Mildly sweet, lightly tangy and full of the delicious flavor of umeboshi plums! I followed the recipe, but only used 1/4 cup oil, rather than 1/2 cup- I don't like a very oily salad dressing. I did add a tsp miso as suggested, which added a really nice flavor. I really love the sesame seeds in this- my food processor broke them up a little, but there are still nice little bits, which add a yummy sesame flavor and a bit of texture. I used part canola oil, part olive oil and a little toasted sesame oil. We just had on mixed greens... we ate them all! Very, very good! We'll repeat this for sure.
