Asian salad dressing

Years ago (about 5-6) I made this salad dressing from a low carb cookbook. Since then, I've gotten rid of the cookbook & haven't made this dressing. We loved it and I have no idea why I quit making it. I recently remembered it, and now I can't remember all the ingredients or amounts. Can y'all help?

Rice vinegar
Lemon juice
Sesame oil
Sambal Olek
Black pepper

Do you think there's anything else in this?

  1. I'd probably sub lime for the lemon .and add more garlic and ginger.

    1. Our base is vegetable oil, then rice vinegar, some sugar and a bit of sesame oil.

      1. Usually soy sauce is involved....
        I use rice vinegar instead of the lemon since are both acids

        1. there must be some sort of neutral oil (like grapeseed or maybe peanut), since a small dab of sesame oil is all you need for a big sesame taste
