Classic Soy Ginger Vinaigrette

pastryparrot1's picture
This is a great salad dressing for any Asian type salad. I would recommend using a low sodium type of soy sauce for this salad dressing. Otherwise the soy sauce might overpower the salad. Another great choice would be Tamari. Tamari is a Japanese soy sauce that is darker in color and has a deeper flavor than soy sauce. It is not always easy to find but if you do, you will be pleased with the subtle differences it offers compared to regular soy sauce.
  Garlic cloves 2 Large, minced and mashed to a paste with0.25 teaspoon salt
  Rice vinegar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Honey 3 Tablespoon
  Soy sauce 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Scallions 2 , finely chopped (White And Light Green Parts)
  Ginger 1 Inch, peeled and grated
  Sesame oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Canola oil 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

Place the mashed garlic in a bowl. Add the vinegar, honey, soy sauce, scallions, ginger and sesame oil. Whisk to mix well. Slowly add the canola oil – in a thin stream – whisking constantly until you have an emulsified dressing. Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks. Mix dressing well before each use. Allow dressing to reach room temperature before using.
