Author Notes

Make this pretty and simple dipping sauce with a 2:1 ratio of boiling water and seasoned rice vinegar, then add in some sugar and salt and, once cooled add in some vibrantly colored herbs and chilis for a beautiful presentation. This tastes amazing aside tofu or tossed into some noodles. —olivesfordinner
