italian dressing + soy sauce…



I love the idea of salad, but I rarely make salads at home because they usually seem more fun and exotic when someone else makes it. However, my friend Mari recently told me about her fancy secret combo {I guess it's not a secret anymore}…italian dressing and soy sauce! What do those two have in common, you ask? Well, my friend, the mix of the two brings your standard 'ole Italian dressing to a new, slightly Asian-y, level. And, it's now my new best friend. 1 part soy sauce to 3 parts Italian dressing mixed with a little black pepper, cubed Persian cukes, and some baby heirloom tomatoes! {And yes, the pieces are so small, I find it easier to eat with chopsticks}.

  1. ooh I’ll have to try that and the salad.
    I’ve been taking Marie’s raspberry vinaigrette and mixing it with balsamic vinegar. So tasty!

  2. Fresh! Now winter is here I am craving hot food most of the time but sometimes I feel so full I just need some salad!

  3. I have to say that I am very intrigued by this. Soy is something I would never think of mixing with Italian dressing, but your picture and description look and sound so yummy, that I’m definitely trying it. We’ll see what happens…;)
