Quick Tip:

Try adding mandarin segments or sliced mango for a burst of added sweetness.

And, for a heartier meal, combine this salad with brown rice, buckwheat noodles or edamame.

For the emulsified/thicker sauce, add the water at the end while continuing to blend.

You’ll see it instantly starts to form a thicker and lighter-coloured mayo-like consistency. Fun!

This sauce will keep well in the fridge, in an airtight container, for about 5 days.
