Episode 126: Five-Herb Vinaigrette
The light nutty flavor of grape seed oil is expertly blended together with complex flavors of dried spices to create Ming's signature vinaigrette. At Verrill Farms in Concord, Massachusetts, Ming shares the secrets of growing these five special herbs. Then, showing off the versatility of this magnificent sauce, Ming makes a Marinated Tomato Salad with Sesame-Crusted Goat Cheese, Warm Rock Shrimp and Celery Root Salad, and Wok-Stirred Mushroom Salad. Guest chef Jody Adams uses the flavorful sauce to prepare Grilled Pork Tenderloin marinated in Ming's Five-Spice Herb Vinaigrette with Grilled Red Onion and Sweet and Sour Grilled Peaches and Spinach Salad.
