Chinese Chicken Salad Dressing (REC)


Lynn Gifford

Thought of this when I posted to the Wendy's Mandarin Orange Salad thread. I use this for Chinese
Chicken Salad made with shredded cooked chicken, lettuce, carrot, mandarin oranges, scallions, water
chestnuts, celery, crispy noodles and toasted almonds or cashews. Dom DeLuise's Chinese Dressing
2/3 cup seasoned rice vinegar 2 cups water
3/2 cup white sugar
4/4 cup plum sauce 2 TB soy sauce 1 TB fresh ginger, grated 2 whole cloves garlic 2 TB sesame oil
5/2 cup vegetable oil (optional)

Bring vinegar, sugar & water to a boil. Stir to dissolve sugar. Off heat, add ginger, plum sauce,
soy sauce, garlic cloves (peeled, smashed a bit & stuck onto a toothpick) and oils. Refrigerate
overnight. Shake well before serving. Makes about a quart.
