I can never go past a fresh Asian salad on a hot summer day. It always reminds me of many a steaming hot day seeking refuge at a shady table outside at a hawker stall in Singapore, Malaysia, or Thailand during my teenage years.
Those of you freezing your rear ends off in the Northern hemisphere probably can’t even contemplate the hot sun on your body right now. But for those of us basking down under, we're celebrate all things summer today.
As I continue my crusade against commercial salad dressings, it occurred to me that no dressing repertoire would be complete without a quick, easy Asian dressing.
So, here it is. This dressing pairs beautifully with any greens, bean shoots, julienned carrots, cucumber, green onions, and radishes. Drizzle this dressing over some fresh julienned veggies, and you've got a winner every time.
