Sweet & Tangy Asian Dressing is the perfect as a salad dressing or marinade. Easy to make! Weight Watchers friendly recipe. www.bitesofflavor.com


I really do love making my own sauces and salad dressing.  I usually have the items on hand so I’m able to whip something up pretty quickly.  Also, I like the fact that I’m able to control all the ingredients that go into a dressing.  Sauces and dressings are super versatile because you can add them to a salad, use as a dip, or even use as a marinade for steak, chicken, or pork!  My Sweet &  Tangy Asian Dressing is addictive and a Weight Watchers friendly recipe with 1 SmartPoints per serving.


This dressing is sweet with a hint of spice, which is a great combination for any Asian inspired dish!  You can make this dressing with low sodium soy sauce.  I personally like using Tamari, which is basically gluten free soy sauce.


All the other ingredients are great to have on hand.  Most of the ingredients are used in stir fry’s, so once you buy all the ingredients, you’ll be able to make this dressing easily and you’ll be able to use those ingredients for other recipes!  This dressing is easy to make, no special equipment necessary.  Just a bowl!
