Lately I have been experimenting with all kinds of dressings- dressings with different fruits, vinegars, water, oil, spices- and I came up with one that is very easy to make, and that many people enjoy.
I made this dressing with oil and then with water, and found that the oil is not necessary. If you would like a thicker consistency, however, you can substitute the water for oil.
This is a sesame-ginger dressing with balsamic vinegar and soy sauce. While it uses three rather potent ingredients (ginger, balsamic, soy), neither of them stand out too strongly. It’s a nice blend of the three, with some great additional spices.
