Asian Salad

25 May

What makes this salad Asian??   The vinegar…

Ume Plum Vinegar is something I learned to use in a cooking class I took with Diane Carlson, from the Conscious Gourmet. This vinegar is made from umeboshi plums, which are fermented and therefore salty and sour all at the same time. The vinegar made from these plums is also salty and sour.

When in a rush, I dress salads using this vinegar and I do not need to add nothing else but olive oil for a delicious, exotic salad dressing.


Your favorite mix of salad greens – lettuces, baby spinach, sprouts
Chopped tomatoes
Sliced cucumbers
Drizzle of ume plum vinegar
Drizzle of olive oil
  1. In a salad bowl or even in your own dinner plate, mix together the salad components.
  2. Drizzle a bit of olive oil and ume plum vinegar over the salad. Toss to combine and dress well.


That’s it… enjoy.
