If you are lucky to have Shiso (Perilla), try this simple salad. You may wish to add extra ingredients such as Garlic and Chilli. But I believe a simple dressing such as ‘Ponzu’ is the best to enjoy the flavour and fragrance of Shiso. If you make this salad using Basil, add some Garlic.
2 to 3 Tomatoes
4 to 6 Shiso (Perilla) Leaves *finely chopped
1/4 Red Onion *finely chopped
2 tablespoons Ponzu *OR 1 tablespoon Rice Vinegar & 1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon Sesame Oil *optional
- Combine all the dressing ingredients.
- Cut Tomatoes into small pieces, place in a serving bowl, and pour the dressing over just before you serve.
- *Note: If you make this salad using Basil, add some Garlic and use Olive Oil instead of Sesame Oil.
I made the soy and vinegar variation and really loved it.
Great recipe, thanks
Thank you for your comment, Thomas. If you used Shiso, you are in north hemisphere that is in summer. Take care and stay safe.
