Favorite Food Friday: Asian Dressing

I love salad! I can eat it as a side or as my meal or as a snack or as... well, you get the point. One of my favorites is salad with Asian style dressing.
The problem for me is I can never find one that I like in a bottle. And every time that I have attempted to create my own it hasn't turned out right - until now. I finely found a blend that I love - not too sweet or salty or orangey - just perfect for my tastes.

what you put in it:
2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon Mirin
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, finely minced
1 teaspoon sugar
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1/4 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 cup olive oil

how you make it:
Combine all ingredients, except for the oil, in a mixing bowl. Slowly add in oil while stirring with a whisk. Serve on a bed of lettuce mixed with mandarin oranges, almonds and crunchy chow mein noodles (also good are water chestnuts and bamboo shoots). Enjoy!
