My children are all hooked on this Dressing for Dinner sauce, and prefer to come home to a plate of delicious salad than a bag of crisps and a chocolate biscuit.


  • 25g finely chopped onion
  • 50ml vegetable oil
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) rice wine vinegar
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) water
  • ½ tbsp chopped fresh ginger root

  • 15ml (1 tbsp) soy sauce
  • 7.5ml (1 ½ tsp) tomato purée
  • 7.5ml (1 ½ tsp) sugar

Combine all the ingredients, except for the salt and pepper, in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Season to taste.
