Gochujang Dressing Recipe

Gochujang (Korean Hot Pepper Paste) is a very trendy ingredient at the moment. With the rise of Korean food, chefs are adding Korean ingredients into traditional dishes.  I thought I would try gochujang in a salad dressing.
I first read about using silken tofu in the ITSU recipe book, which a friend gifted to me. They called it a no-mayo mayonnaise. I loved the idea of the creaminess of mayo without the calories. It is a great option for healthy eating and vegans. I adapted the recipe to make a citrus Korean dressing that would be delicious with an Asian inspired coleslaw or used as a dipping sauce for tempura vegetables.
