"This is a great Asian-style dressing for a pasta salad. You can prepare this dressing in advance, but toss with the salad no more than 15 minutes before serving."

chopped fresh garlic
rice wine vinegar
hot red pepper flakes
I made this recipe in an effort to duplicate a salad I had at my favorite Thai restaurant and it was even better than what I was trying to accomplish. I used it on lettuce salad and had everyone asking for the recipe. Thanks!
Pretty good. But VERY salty. Next time I will use either low sodium soy sauce or rice vinegar. Otherwise, a keeper.
Super quick and easy - makes a great salad dressing (minus the hot pepper flakes).
Yummy! I made mine alittle different though. 4 tea. sesame oil, 2 T. minced ginger, 2 T minced garlic, 1/2 tea. red chilli pepper, 2T soy sauce, 2 T. sugar, 1/4 tea. salt. So good on udon noodles, and green beans.
Taking into consideration the other reviews of this dressing being too salty, I reduced the soy sauce to 2T (instead of the original 6T) and use 1/2T of powdered ginger instead of fresh. I keep the other measurements the same. Not salty and with a bit of tang, this soy-sesame dressing is now a staple in our kitchen - great on meats, salads, veggies and noodles.
Way TOO SALTY! Very strong flavor.
This was the perfect dressing for the Asian Pasta Salad recipe also from Allrecipes! I think it would be too intense for most tossed salads, but was just right for this.
I've used nothing but this dressing for a year-I put it on salads, vegetables, and even meats. I make a double batch and make sure I always have some in the refrig. I kind of make it a little different each time, now using balsamic vinegar instead of rice wine.
