After eating at The Tomato Head in Knoxville on Sunday, Amanda raved about the mushroom sesame salad dressing. I didn’t get to try it myself, but I figured that I could find a recipe online. No such luck.
The recipe I tried was a knockoff to some name brand shiitake and sesame dressing. When I followed the recipe, it tasted like cider vinegar with flavoring. I added more oil to subdue it, and was still not happy. After some garlic, salt, pepper, and onion powder, it was palatable. I think that Amanda snuck sugar in it when I had my back turned.
Today, I tried to get the recipe from The Tomato Head, but sadly, they don’t release such information since they are hoping to sell it themselves around Tennessee. I guess I will have to make a trip down there to get some and try to recreate it.
