  1. Using a Microplane, grate the ginger and set aside.

  2. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients EXCEPT the water. Using a whisk or an immersion blender, whisk the ingredients together until a thick, uniform sauce is formed. 

  3. Add water, as needed, until you have reached desired consistency. This will vary depending on your desired use.*

  4. Serve immediately with spring rolls or over salad or noodles. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. 

Recipe Notes

Thickness will depend on the desired use. For sauces over salads and pasta, go with a thinner, pourable sauce. Dipping sauces should be thicker.
