I came across this recipe from The Victory Garden somewhere, can’t recall where, but the ingredients looked interesting, and there was this new stuff I wanted to try.
We try to limit Rich’s dairy intake, so when I came across something in teh market that said it was ‘better than sour cream’, I forked over the $5 to try it out.
The dressing is still pretty darned tasty, tho’.
•1 cup mayonnaise
•1/4 cup sour cream (or this other stuff)
•1/2 tsp Sriracha
•1/4 tsp fish sauce
•1 tbsp ketchup
•1 tbsp salad vinegar
•1 tbsp low-salt tamari (or soy sauce)
•1 tsp powdered ginger
•1/4 tsp Seasoned Salt
•1 tbsp dried onion
•1 tsp parsley
•1 tsp sweet relish
Yeh, it’s a lot of ingredients, and I have drifted a bit (surprise!) from the original recipe (look it up, if you like), but look at what’s in your regular bottle of dressing from the market, then gather a mixing bowl and settle down.
Nice, even with that kinda vile tofu mishegas. Imagine how much nicer it would be with sour cream, or mebbe even créme fraîche?
Now THAT would be a salad dressing!
Also, taste it when you make your own and see what you think, but I think I could have mebbe bumped up the Sriracha to a full teaspoon.
