Today, what we’re gonna be doing is making a Japanese-style salad dressing. One of my favorites because it has onion!

Sometimes, I like to put a little bit of chicken in, or a protein, like tofu, into the salads to make it a complete meal

But today, we’re just gonna do it as a side dish.

Sometimes, I also put in some lemon zest to give it a little bit more of a lemony kick.

We also put some honey in for some sweetness

Sometimes, I use a little bit of brown sugar or white sugar, depending on my mood

The predominant flavor is there with a little bit of tang from the lemon juice, as well as the rice vinegar. And very light. We used extra virgin olive oil for a little bit of a kick.

Have you made a salad dressing with onion before, onion and soy sauce?
