“The thing that surprised me when I first made this dressing was how salty the dressing is. I was wary about pouring it over the vegetables. But, it works well due to the blandness of the vegetables. Letting it sit for 15-30 minutes before serving allows the vegetables to absorb the dressing’s flavor” –Andi Wolff
