Sesame Ginger Salad Dressing

Talk about an EXPLOSION of Asian flavors. I managed to cram quite a few Asian ingredients into one salad dressing, and let me tell you, I get cravings for this stuff. 

Sweet honey, savory sesame oil, bright ginger, and salty soy sauce goodness all come together with a hint of orange in the background. There's also some rice vinegar of course, for good measure. Pull those Asian staples out of the pantry and refrigerator door and whip together a delightfully fresh salad!

As pictured above, I love mandarin oranges, cabbage, red bell peppers, green onions, sesame seeds, shredded carrots, and crunchy noodles with this salad. There's such a wide variety of flavors and textures that your mouth goes crazy, in a good way. Isn't it colorful and enticing? And guess what? It tastes even better than it looks!
