Disclosure- I received a gift pack of Marukan Rice Vinegars and Ponzu Sauce to affiliate my review but all opinions are 100% my own.
I love cooking with Asian flavors so I was excited to try Marukan’s rice vinegars and ponzu sauce. I use rice vinegar when I am making rice for sushi. Marukan’s Seasoned Gourmet Rice Vinegar is great for adding a little something extra when making sushi. It is also a great base for making vinaigrette dressings. I add it to a little extra virgin olive oil, some orange juice, and some fresh herbs for a light citrus dressing. I had some asparagus that I didn’t know what to do with so I decided to create an Asian inspired side dish. I sauteed the asparagus in some extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 cup of Marukan Ponzu Sauce, 1 packet of Stevia for sweetness, and a Tablespoon of Marukan Seasoned Gourmet Rice Vinegar. It came out tender and delicious.
