I buy an Asian dip at one of my favorite food stores in Lake Forest, Foodstuffs. They don’t always have it in stock and there have been times when I can’t get it and then I really crave it.
It’s so delicious on salads or just to use for dipping with homemade chips.
I was determined to try to make it from scratch this week and what do you know…first try and the recipe is almost exact. Not too often first time’s a charm. Luck!
