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.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh garlic
- 1 tablespoon minced ginger
- 6 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 3/4 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
Mix all ingredients until well-blended.
