|Chinese salad dressing|
|May 30, 2008 11:41|
|Last year whilst on holiday I had a dish simply called "Chinese Salad". It contained iceberg lettuce, strips of ham, strips of carrots and strips of clear plastic looking stuff. The dressing on this salad was absolutely gorgeous. The chinese family kindly gave me some in a bottle which I took home. They said it would keep for a long time in the fridge and it did. I would love to recreate this salad dressing but I don't know where to start, maybe someone out there knows what it could be. It was a milky white colour and was sweet with a sour tang. It seperated whilst in the bottle and had to be shaken before putting on the salad. I hope someone can help me.|

You can buy it everywhere.
They also put this on fruit salad as a "salad dressing"

|No, it wasn't mayonnaise, I know what mayonnaise tastes like. It was very watery for a start and tasted nothing like mayonnaise.|

|What part of the country did you eat this "Salad Dressing". |
It may help us to discover just what it is. It doesn't seem to be a typical dressing as salads are only eaten in a very small number of provinces.

|Am I understanding you correctly.|
You ate this salad dressing in SPAIN
It may not be Chinese at all.
As I said Salad'in much of China is not typical or traditional and the only ones that I have eaten have either been dressed with nothing or oil and crushed garlic and chilli
or in quasi 'western style' restaurants IMPORTED dressings like Mayonaise Thousand Island and French dressing are served from the bottle.
Just like Deep Fired Icecream can be found nowhere here in the country unless it a less than appertizing version imported from Canada.
You might have to post on a Spanish forum to find the answer to this question. Good Luck
