Japanese yuzu dressing recipe (柚子ドレッシング)

Yuzu is an East Asian citrus fruit whose fresh aroma can spruce up the most boring dish. One way to make use of its invigorating flavour is in a salad dressing. Unless your local Asian grocer stocks fresh fruit, feel free to substitute it with a more readily available yuzu vinegar. Lime is an okay substitute but the flavour just won't be the same.
  • 2 tbsps yuzu juice or yuzu vinegar
  • 2 tbsps soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • optional: 4 tbsps vegetable oil - plain sunflower or, for an extra punch, sesame
Shake the ingredients vigorously in a jar until completely homogeneous. Pour over salad right before serving.
