I don’t know if I can name this recipe as a Japanese dressing...

BUT, this is something what I often make when the tomato starts to be in abundant.

It’s based on mustard and vinegar, but adding splash of soy sauce for a nice umami kick!

It is very refreshing and whipped up in 2mins!

All the ingredients should be widely available in any country, so please give a shot!

I realize I have been posting more than 5 different kind of dressing recipes!

Should I make a video about that?? It’s such a lovely salad season if you are living in northern hemisphere.

If you are living on the other side of the globe, I have soup and curry recipes too!! haha

Enjoy and have a lovely day!!

<Miwa’s tips>

・Wine vinegar is much sweeter than any other kind of vinegar. If you are substituting to any other vinegar such as apple cider vinegar, adjust the taste by adding very small amount of honey.

・If you are not sensitive to onion pungency, skip the water soaking process.

・Other than tomato, you can use leafy green, corn, cucumber, avocado, beans, etc.

Basically the combination for this dressing recipe is endless!

・If you are looking for a gluten free diet, use Tamari soy sauce!

・Vegan option→ Swap honey for sugar or agave syrup
