Can you see the pretty pink specks of paprika?
Is your mouth watering?
Have you been to one of those Japanese Steak House restaurants? The kind where they cook the food right in front of you? Sometimes they serve a simple lettuce salad with a most delicious dressing. It is pink and slightly sweet and o perfectly delicious.
I suppose nothing is as good as the real deal, especially when in the atmosphere of the restaurant and such.
This recipe comes pretty close.
If you have a hankerin' for the dressing you can make it right this minute.
In about that much time.
It really is so simple.
You probably already have everything you need.
a cute little whisk (one of my favorite things)
Put everything in a bowl or in a jar, including the whisk.
Whisk it all together and it turns into this smooth, pink, deliciousness.
At the restaurant they serve it over just lettuce. I like to add shredded carrot, julienned cucumber and such. Add what you like. Tomatoes, eggs, onions, anything you like in salad.
I served Apple Roast Pork Sandwiches this day. Some put the dressing on their sandwiches instead of Ranch Dressing.
I keep this dressing (and others like it) in handy dandy squirt bottles (one of my favorite things).
