  1. I must hunt down some yuzu! Another do-able recipe and I think I would love to dip some crudites in this! What about marinating some fish or chicken before grilling? Thanks for the recipe.


    1. Dear Debra!
      This kind of dressing can be applied to many recipes and salads!
      Would definitel go well on grilled fish (white-fleshed) and light grilled chicken!
