The Secret's Out!
One of my favorite salad dressings is Korean inspired. I make this dressing at least once a week if not more, just ask Hal! Most of you have tried it at our Chosun Family Picnic each year. I usually serve it with Soba noodles and everyone raves about it! Many times I am asked to share the recipe, so here you go!
Korean Sesame Dressing
6 TBS Toasted Sesame Oil
4 ½ TBS Rice Vinegar
3 TBS Mirin
¼ Cup Crushed Toasted Sesame Seeds
1 TBS Sugar
1-2 TBS Chili Garlic Sauce
Put in a jar and Shake!
This dressing is excellent with any kind of noodles. Soba is my favorite but it’s just as good served with thin linguini or Thai rice noodles. To the noodles add some chopped scallion, chopped cilantro, julienne carrots to start. To fancy it up even more add edamame or snow peas. To make a dinner out of it add seasoned pressed tofu or grilled shrimp.
My go to salad to accompany any protein is to make a slaw with the dressing. Finely shredded red or green cabbage, carrots, broccoli, red peppers, lots of chopped fresh cilantro and just toss with the dressing. But let’s be realistic… I love the already chopped Kale mixes and Shredded broccoli slaws at the grocery store. Rip open the bag and add scallion, cilantro, dressing and you are done! This salad is fabulous with BBQ Ribs or BBQ Tofu. The acidity in the dressing cuts through the richness of the pork. Totally divine!!
I hope you all enjoyed your Summer and are looking forward to a beautiful Fall.
