Wafu dressing

Wafu dressing is a vinaigrette-type salad dressing based on soy sauce, popular in Japan. The name literally means Japanese-style dressing.

The standard wafu dressing consists of a mixture of Japanese soy sauce, rice vinegar and vegetable oil. There are many variations flavoured with additional ingredients such as aonori, grated ginger, umeboshi puree, wasabi or citrus fruits such as yuzu. Those flavoured with sesame oil are often called "chuka(fu) dressing" in Japan, meaning "Chinese style dressing" [http://metropolis.co.jp/tokyo/639/localflavors.asp] , although this is unknown in China.

Mari's Foods manufactures a wafu dressing under the trademark "Wafu" [http://www.wafu.ca] .
