We loved this dressing. I made it for the Salmon Sesame Salad on this site and it was a big hit with my family. I didn't have any sambal badjak so I just used a little hot sauce I had on hand. I also used powdered Ginger instead of fresh because that's what I had. It turn out wonderful! It tasted more like a ginger dressing then lemongrass but the lemongrass did add a layer of flavor that is a must! The flavors mixed so well and made my salad so interesting. I would recommend Looking up the Salmon Sesame Salad and make both the salad and this dressing to go with it. So delicious.
