Soy Ginger Ramen + Greens

February 20, 2015


Author Notes: Inspired by Teppan-style Japanese steakhouse salad dressing, this salad is fast and easy and you will have leftover dressing to use later! This is also a great entree, just grill a fillet, tofu, or some chicken and top with a bit more dressing to make a full meal! Might even be tastier if made the night before and chilled!Alexandra V.
