Few weeks ago, Sis brought our Dad for some shopping therapy and they ended with dinner at a Japanese restaurant in town. Ever since, Dad has been raving about this “salad with special sauce”, where he cleaned up two bowls of it at a go. Now, Dad has never been a fan of salad (In fact, who is? Unless we are on a diet...okok I speak for myself only) so I was really curious to what kind of sorcery the chef performed on that salad.
