I’m such a fickle cow. I’ve replaced my favourite salad dressing yet again. These days it’s all about spice! If you can’t stand the heat, this salad, based on one I had at Sariwon Korean restaurant in Thornhill, Ont., is definitely not for you:
Spicy Korean Dressing
1 tbsp (15 mL) rice vinegar
11/2 tsp (7 mL) sambal olek or Asian chili paste
1 tsp (5 mL) soy sauce
1/2 tsp (2 mL) granulated sugar
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
1 tsp (5 mL) toasted sesame oil
3 tbsp (45 mL) vegetable oil
Whisk vinegar, sambal olek and soy sauce together. Stir in sugar, garlic and salt. Whisking constantly, drizzle in sesame and vegetable oils.
Makes about 1/3 cup (75 mL)
