This dressing is so versatile, inspired by the Japanese recipes.

Soy Sesame Dressing with Rainbow Salad

Here, I have decided to assemble a rainbow salad comprising of finely shredded white cabbage, purple cabbage, julienne red, yellow and green peppers, daikon, carrots and baby tomatoes. You can be as creative and as colorful as you want – let your inner child take over!
