Does anyone else agree with me that the highlight of the Katsu Curry from Wagamama’s is the side salad because the dressing is so delicious? I recreated the flavours at home to make this Wagamama-Inspired Salad Dressing tastes just like the one from the restaurant!
It’s the perfect combination of different flavours – the saltiness of the soy sauce, the sweetness of the agave syrup, and the sourness of the vinegar all pairs beautifully with the subtle but fiery heat of the ginger and aroma of the garlic.
This dressing is delicious enough to transform any boring salad leaves into a wonderful dish that you just can’t stop eating!
This dressing also happens to be vegan, and you can make it gluten-free by substituting the soy sauce with tamari. I’ve also made a naturally sweetened version here by using agave syrup instead of sugar, but feel free to substitute any other sweetener you like.
What’s more, it’s so quick and easy to make! I’d recommend making it fresh each time you’d like to eat it because the fresh garlic doesn’t keep particularly well.
