Shiro Ae (White Dressing) is a delicious, savory side dish served at Japanese inns. Usually, not-too-sweet tofu dresses spinach or squash. Here I've combined walnuts with honeydew to add extra crunch with great flavor.
The Super Secret: South Beach/ Low Carb Diets look down on soft fruits with a high sugar content. But by adding protein (here walnuts & tofu) the glucose enters the blood stream more slowly, meaning a lower glycemic count. For years, I've made Persimmon Walnut Shiro Ae, but since persimmons weren't in season, and that Honeydew was winking at me from the sideboard.... —BoulderGalinTokyo
