Olde Cape Cod Toasted Sesame Soy & Ginger
On a scale of 1 - 10 I rate this product a 10+
Since going on a diet I've been looking for a dressing that would be tasty as well as one that wouldn't take much to flavor. In the past I've always used Ranch on just about all of my salads but when eating at Asian restaurants I've always made the change to their delicious dressings, especially those containing ginger and sesame. When using my Ranch I have to load my salad down to get flavor in every bite. With Asian dressings it only takes a little. So with the diet came the search for a truly good Asian dressing, not only for taste but also for lack of calories due to the flavor going a long way.
I think I ended up buying every Asian dressing in the grocery stores around me only to give them a try and either throw them away or give them away. I searched through the dressing isle as well as the Oriental food section. Then over near the marinades I found Olde Cape Cod Toasted Sesame Soy & Ginger - Fat Free. It was about the only brand I haven't tried so I decided to add it to my list of rejects. The store (Food Lion) had 4 bottles and the price wasn't bad. Just over $3.00 for a 16 oz. bottle. I took it home and gave it a try. It was wonderful! The perfect blend! I love it! I even went back to the store and bought the other 3 bottles just in case they don't restock. Last night I decided to try something with my little taste of Asia. I drizzled just a little over my apple slices. Oh my what a great treat. Tonight I had a salad with chicken, a sprinkle of cheese, almond slivers, apple chunks and my Soy & Ginger Dressing. The salad was large and believe it or not but I only used 2 Tbsp. of dressing which is only 40 calories - and no fat!
If you like Asian dressings this is one you really don't want to miss. I'm looking forward to giving this one a try as a marinade or maybe drizzled over a noodle dish.
