This is a simple, sprightly dressing that gives a flavorful nudge to understated foods.
Mix the liquid ingredients and the sugar. Add the garlic and stir to blend. Let stand 5–10 minutes before using to give the garlic time to permeate the soy.
Dribble ⅛ teaspoon over individual dumplings or meatballs. For serving in a shallow dip dish, garnish with a few green scallion rings. Use sparingly.
Make fresh each time.
