"You cannot see the lettuce and the dressing without suspecting a salad"

-- Arthur Conan Doyle

Salads are only as good as their dressings, right?  Plain green leaves are not fooling anyone into thinking that its a meal!  

Thai inspired dressings are my personal favourite and here is a fast, simple, sure fire hit of a dressing that is my very own "go to".

Chilli & Sesame Thai Dressing

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp ponzu
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp black sesame seeds
Mix everything together and get dressing!

Prep time:

You can add anything you like to your salad but I love a combo of avocado, spring onion, cucumber, edamame and cold soba noodles.
Cook the soba as per the packet (usually 3-4 mins in boiling water) and then place it into ice cold water to chill.  I usually throw the frozen edamame in at the last minute to thaw.  Drain everything and toss with the other ingredients and dressing.  

What is your favourite salad dressing?
