Warm Asian Vinaigrette

A few days ago a friend texted me the question,
"What is your favorite word?"
I responded, 
(I don't like to settle for anything less.)

Yesterday I took an online quiz titled:
Which Dictionary Word Best Describes You?
My answers yielded:
"You are misunderstood...and mysterious.
To those who can see below the surface, however, you are highly fascinating and truly lovable.
It might take a second for you to warm up,
but once you do, 
you're leagues ahead of everyone else.
You are authentic and extremely versatile."

Just like this vinaigrette. ;)

Use to marinate beef or chicken,

or, Vegans (unite!),
pour over greens and grilled vegetables.
Or, if you want a dish that goes beyond extraordinary,
marinate your meat and vegies before wrapping in a burrito,
and top with the simplest of guacamole made with avocado/crushed garlic/sea salt.
It's versatility is truly mysterious, fascinating, leagues ahead...
and extraordinary.
Don't settle for anything less in a vinaigrette,
Or in life.
