Sesame Ginger Dressing

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon pureed garlic
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon pureed ginger
  • 1-2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

Whisk together dressing ingredients in a bowl. Toss over your favorite salad. Try: 6 cups chopped purslane sprigs and 2 grated carrots. Also tasty: shredded nappa cabbage, bean sprouts and diced cucumbers.

Dijon Balsamic Vinaigrette

  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients and mix well (shake in a jar). This tangy, mustard-y dressing is great on many types of salads. Try on greens, tomatoes and beans.
