RECIPE: Thai Salad Dressing

RECIPE: Thai Salad Dressing

Despite all of them being mouth-watering, most are incredibly difficult to make or time-consuming. The list of ingredients are so long, and the process so tedious that I doubt I’ll be making it daily.

As I believe in cooking more at home, naturally I prefer simple recipes. Thankfully the cooking class offered one recipe that is perfect for home cooking: the versatile salad dressing for spicy tropical mixed fruit salad.

When I hear the word¬†‘salad dressing’, I immediately think of balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Not only these ingredients are rather pricey in Asia, it’s just not quite suitable to pair with the other Asian dishes I like to cook. Besides, I’m not a big fan of raw vegetables (i.e salad).

Besides I think good salad are hard to come by; most taste rather bland and one-dimensional. If you’re like me, you will enjoy this salad dressing which teases your taste buds with an amazing combination of umami, sour, sweet and salty. This dressing makes vegetables taste so delicious!
