A spicy and aromatic dish to pair perfectly with our Napa Old Vine Riesling.

DIRECTIONS

2. In a blender or food processor, combine the teriyaki suace with the ginger and chile-garlic sauce and puree until smooth.  With the machine on, slowly add the vegetable oil in a thin stream and puree until the dressing is emulisified.
