One of my all-time favorite things about eating at a late-night Izakaya in Tokyo, or tearing in to a quick sushi lunch in Brooklyn, is the side salad that makes its way to the table almost immediately after the waitress clears the menus. They must be clairvoyant. I need that salad to either curb a bit of my ravenous hunger or, in some cases, to wake my appetite up and prime my palate for the good things to come later in the meal. My all time favorites are the ginger-carrot and the nutty sesame dressings that have become the ubiquitous salad toppers at the beginning of a proper Japanese meal out. And what could be better than being able to whip up that same authentic taste at home – without having to break out the grater, measuring spoons and immersion blender?
