Notes

Variations for Asian Salad Dressing Recipe

  • For a nutty kick, add in 2 tablespoons powdered peanut butter or 2 tablespoons peanut butter.
  • For heat, add in 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper.
  • Add in 3 tablespoons tahini and replace lime juice with lemon juice.
  • For a fun variation, try adding in 2 drops of good quality orange essential oil.
  • If you taste the dressing and it has too much "bite", try adding in a little more sweetener to balance the acidity.
Tip:  I don't recommend using Seasoned Rice Vinegar.  I made that mistake once and found the flavor to be too strong.
