MY LATEST RECIPES

If you cook any Asian food on a semi-regular basis, you probably have most of the ingredients on hand already.

If not, fear not! Nothing is weird. They are all available at your grocery store/Target/Walmart. I’ve also linked to options on Amazon.

I like to mix the dressing in a jar and shake it vigorously. That combines the ingredients better than just a bowl and whisk (although I do that sometimes, too).

If you are more of a “Go big or go home” kind of person, blast it in your blender and don’t look back.

This Asian dressing will keep for up to 4 days in your refrigerator (but not if I’m around).

For gluten-free soy sauce alternatives, use La Choy or Kikkoman's gluten-free soy sauce. Coconut aminos are also a great alternative.
