SOY GINGER DIPPING SAUCE (For Dumplings or Pot Stickers)
"Serve this thin, salty sauce with dumplings or potstickers. "
1/4 cup soy sauce (I use low sodium)
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar (I use about 2 Tbsp plus 1 - 1 1/2 tsp white vinegar, plus a little water)
2 1/2 teaspoons sugar (I omit it)
1/2 medium scallion, minced
2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot (I use 1 tsp)
1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil (I use 1 tsp)
1/2 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes (I use less or omit)
Bring soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and 1/4 cup water to boil in small saucepan over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves.
Pour mixture into bowl and stir in scallion, ginger, oil, and hot red pepper flakes (Sauce can be refrigerated in air-tight container for several days).
Makes about one cup.
