Bang Bang Dressing
A mix together Chinese style no-cook sauce that can dress a salad, be used as a drizzle for tofu, cold meats and sandwich. Not often on menus but one of my favourites is Bang Bang Chicken. A light salad more chicken than veg (just how I like a salad) dressed in a satay style sauce. The dish is called Bang Bang as the chicken breasts are beaten and as the cleaver flattens the meat, you hear bang bang, or so the story goes.
This is such a simple dressing to mix together with store cupboard ingredients. The dressing could revive leftover roasted vegetables or chicken, by adding shredded carrots, spring onion and cucumber.
This is a different Satay style sauce I use my peanut butter-based 1. 2. 3 sauce often, however, if someone was allergic to peanut this would be a good alternative. Here’s hoping they aren’t allergic to sesame seeds… This sauce cuts the edge off the strong peanut or tahini flavour using the soya sauce, vinegar and sesame give the sauce an interesting flavour.
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar
- 4 tablespoons tahini
- 2 tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
- Optional a tablespoon of honey for a sweeter sauce I didn't think it needed it
- Mix the ingredients together until well blended and enjoy.
