  • Not that I'm aware of. But I'd do a google search and I bet you could find it for sale online...

  • Without any hints on the flavor, here are some Japanese-style dressings:
    Asian Ginger Dressing

    3 cloves garlic, minced
    2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
    3/4 cup olive oil
    1/3 cup rice vinegar
    1/2 cup soy sauce
    3 tablespoons honey
    1/4 cup water

    In a 1 pint glass jar or larger, combine the garlic, ginger, olive oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, honey, and water. Cover the jar with a tight fitting lid, and shake well. Remove lid, and heat jar in the microwave for 1 minute just to dissolve the honey. Let cool, and shake well before serving. Store covered in the refrigerator.

  • Asian Tofu Salad

    3 tablespoons canola oil
    2 tablespoons rice vinegar
    1 tablespoon honey
    2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
    1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
    1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 14-ounce package extra-firm, water-packed tofu, rinsed, patted dry and cut into 1-inch cubes
    8 cups mixed salad greens
    2 medium carrots, peeled, halved lengthwise and sliced
    1 large cucumber, chopped

    Whisk canola oil, vinegar, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger and salt in a bowl.

    Place tofu and 2 tablespoons of the dressing in a large nonstick skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, turning every 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes total. Remove from the heat, add 1 tablespoon of the dressing to the pan and stir to coat.

    Toss greens, carrots and cucumber with the remaining dressing. Serve immediately, topped with the warm tofu.
