Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Asian-inspired ingredients lend a lot of flavor, without adding calories, to this simple salad dressing. If you are wondering where to find bottled, minced garlic, look in the produce section at the grocery store. It is usually near the fresh garlic. It is a very convenient product, used often in Asian cooking, eliminating the need to peel and mince fresh garlic cloves.
