Asian Salad Dressing.

This is my favorite Asian Salad Dressing.  I don't think I can claim this as an original recipe.  I'm pretty sure I took a recipe off of the Pioneer Woman and modified it some. 

Asian Salad Dressing.
3 T. Sesame Oil
3 T. Canola Oil

8 T. soy sauce

1/3 c. brown sugar

1 1/2 T. candied ginger, finely chopped
1 or 2 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno pepper.  seeded and finely chopped.  

Yes, I know the picture shows 1/2 a pepper, but that's all I have right now.

Chop that baby up pretty fine.  It doesn't get cooked and you don't want to chock any one.

Stir the dressing well and set it aside to think about itself for a while. 

Now the salad.
1/2 a small head of lettuce.  Napa Cabbage is also good.  Or a combination of the two.

1/2 a small can of water chestnuts and a big handful of bean sprouts.


And just before dressing the salad.  1/2 a bag of ramen noodles, uncooked.  It gives you some crunch that is good.  Smash it up into little bits.  With a rolling pin or a meat mallet.  It's fun.

Oh, and throw away the seasoning packet.  I used to save the seasoning packet, thinking I might use it for something.  There is really nothing that little packet of powder is good for. 

Dress the salad and serve.  Just happened to have a piece of baked salmon to go on top.  Dinner.  



  1. Yum, that would be good with the salmon.

  2. need a concise recipe somewhere- and sounds good.
