    Japanese ‘Ponzu’ Dressing

    ‘Ponzu’ is a super versatile sauce and it can be used as a salad dressing, too. I often add a small amount of Oil to it. Add Ginger, Onion and Toasted Sesame Seeds as well for extra flavours. Because I always have a bottle of ‘Ponzu’, this dressing is super quick and easy for me …

    Yoghurt Mayo Dressing

    I have a nice salad dressing ‘Buttermilk Dressing’ recipe that I created when I tried to copy the dressing which comes in the Coles’ Kaleslaw Salad Kit. It is delicious, but there is a problem. I don’t stock Buttermilk for always. But I always have Greek Yoghurt. This is a Yoghurt version of my mock …

    Garlic Sesame Dressing

    This salad dressing is probably the one I use most frequently. Any Salad Vegetables, Seaweed such as Wakame, Tofu, Egg, Konnyaku (Konjac), or even Noodles taste great with this dressing. I never make it in a large batch as it is so simple to make, but you can easily double the amount. Makes Enough for …

    Basil Sumiso Dressing

It goes very well with boiled Octopus or Squid, and also freshly cooked Konnyaku (Konjac), or Bocconcini. It can be used as a salad dressing. I often add fresh Basil to it. …

    My Buttermilk Dressing

    I like Supermarket Coles’ ‘Kaleslaw Salad Kit’ because I like the flavour of its dressing. I have many times tried to recreate its flavour. One reasonably good result was ‘Yoghurt Dressing’, but I was still not sure how to make the creamy texture of the dressing, but I finally discovered. Use Buttermilk! Makes About 200ml …

    My French Dressing

    I was taught that the ratio of Vinegar to Oil is 1:2. I though the amount of Oil is too much and I always reduced it. If you reduce the amount of Oil, the dressing will separate back into Vinegar and Oil no matter how well you mixed it and whisked it. In that case, …

    Marinated Tapioca Pearls

    It’s all started when I tried to create fake ‘Ikura’, red caviar made from Salmon roe, as ‘Ikura’ is so difficult to find where I live. I tried to turn Tapioca Pearls into fake ‘Ikura’, but my challenge was not successful. However, I ended up creating very pretty Marinated Tapioca Pearls that can be used …

    Coriander Salad Dressing

    This delicious Salad Dressing can be enjoyed by coriander lovers only. Do not encourage coriander haters to try it, because they have particular receptors that find coriander tastes like soap. They taste coriander differently and don’t enjoy it. I am lucky that I can taste Coriander beautifully refreshing. Makes 4 Servings Dressing Ingredients 2 to …

    Onion & Balsamic Sauce

    Along with the Japanese rice vinegar, Balsamic vinegar is an essential vinegar for my cooking. On the other day, I bought a bottle of ‘Aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena’, and it was so sweet and rich. I was glad that I had spent extra dollars for it. This sauce is great for everything, chicken, pork, …

I always use wine vinegar, either red or white, and add no salt and no pepper to the dressing. Everyone who tasted it loved the flavour. I hope you enjoy it, too. Ingredients Anchovy Filets …
