Oriental Salad Dressing

Monday, May 17, 2010

The weather does seem to be getting a little better. Well it's warmer, if not quite sunnier at least and salads will soon be on the menu again! 

This recipe is a light oriental salad dressing that can be thrown together in no time. Fantastic with a mixed leaf salad, the dressing also goes great poured over Soba / Buckwheat Noodles. It would also work as dipping sauce served along side Vegetable Spring RollsWontons or Oriental Meatballs

The dressing will coat 100g of mixed leaf salad and serve two people.

• 1 tablespoon of light soy sauce
• 2 table spoons of orange juice. (Unsweetened is best. Fresh if you can manage)
• 1 sweetener (Add a second sweetener if your orange juice is a little bitter)
• ½ teaspoon of chili flakes (more if you like it spicy)
• a good dash of white pepper and a little salt
• several drops of sesame oil
• 1 teaspoon of sesame seeds (you can dry roast them in a dry pan on a medium heat for a couple of minutes if you're feeling fancy!)

  1. Mix the soy, orange juice and sweetener in a container or jar with a lid. Put the lid on and shake well until combined.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients, stir to combine and serve poured over mixed leaves and toss to coat well.
