Fear My Refined Palate

How’s this for shifting gears:

200 ml soya oil
100 ml malt vinegar
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce

Mix, serve.

It turns out that this makes a very pleasant salad dressing, aromatic and flavorful. It’s got a smooth, unobtrusive taste, though, not smothering the actual taste of the vegetables, which has been my experience with salad dressings up to this point.

Thank you for your understanding during this culinary digression, the demented savagery you’ve come to expect will return forthwith.

    Watch out for that soy, man. Don’t you know it’ll make you gay?

    I had that exact link queued up in an early draft. In the end, I didn’t feel like soiling my beautiful creation with the jibbering, shit-smeared lunacy of WingNutDaily, but if you insist.

    So, yes: people, be warned that some people on the internets think that my salad dressing will shrink your penis, enlarge your uterus and give you the gay.

    Aside from that, it’s fabulous.

    Speaking of shifting gears, Amazon just put a new thing on my “plog” (which is a neologism that IN NO WAY SUCKS) entitled “How About Another Memory Stick Format?” which begins “Looks like Sony is moving into the high-speed flash memory game with today’s announcement of a new Memory Stick format–Pro-HG.”

    Oh thank god! Because they didn’t have a big enough morass of totally pointless proprietary formats already.
