Dressing 1 – lime/soy
1 tablespoon tamari soy sauce
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice (about 2 limes)

Heat the above ingredients gently in a small saucepan till the sugar melts – stir frequently.

1 tablespoon of chopped coriander leaves

Allow to cool.

Dressing 2 – wasabi cream
3 tablespoons sour cream
