I love a classic vinaigrette salad dressing, and make them routinely for our dinner salads. Living in Hawaii, and eating a largely asian diet, I have been looking for an asian influenced vinaigrette recipe for a salad dressing. I wanted something more than just adding shoyu (soy sauce) to a classic vinaigrette recipe, and was experimenting with various miso combinations. I made a simple vinaigrette with white miso, and one with a red miso, with rice wine vinegar with 2/3 canola oil, 1/3 olive oil. I did NOT add any shallots or mustard as I wanted to keep them simple. I will make further batches with mustard and with shallots to do some comparison tasting. I might also compare using rice vinegar with white wine or sherry vinegar.
So I dont go about reinventing the wheel...does anyone have any asian inspired vinaigrette recipes that are tried and true? On that note, do any of you imaginative chefs out there have an idea of what would be an ideal recipe or combination of ingredients.
I'd like to have a go to recipe for a salad dressing that would be asian inspired.
