Here is another of my favorite dressings, it is wonderful
over a spring greens salad and its dreamy texture and nutty flavor makes it a
nice dip for fresh vegies. I can usually tell you that I found this recipe here
or that it was inspired by that, but the honest truth is, this one came from my
own twisted search for new ways to use two of my favorite seasonings.
Sometimes, the best part of what I do is that it allows me to go in the kitchen
say what if. You should try it. Experimenting is fun and the worst that can
happen is you’ll end up with a new dish of dog food instead of dinner. Luckily
for me my dog will eat anything and we have plenty of takeout places to call.
A very creamy dressing this recipe contains no cream,no yougurt, sour cream but is
peanut butter based. This allows it to be healthier than other creamy dressings
while still maintaining a texture that is familiar and appealing.
In a bowl
combine oil, peanut butter, soya, Oyster sauce and lemon juice; mix to a smooth
consistency. Add your garlic and ginger and mix until it is evenly distributed.
All this can be done with a mixer on medium speed in less than a minute but I
tend to be old school and do believe that method does affect taste. Enjoy!
