Green Tea Vinaigrette
In a small saucepan, bring the vinegar and matcha just to a simmer. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Uncover and let cool completely.Advertisement
In a blender, combine the tea mixture, mint, shallot, maple syrup, mustard, lime juice and garlic. Cover and blend until mint is chopped, scraping sides as needed. With blender running, gradually add oil in a thin stream. Store, covered, in the refrigerator for up to one week.
Matcha is a vibrantly hued powdered green tea. Ordinary green tea that you find in tea bags is not a suitable substitute. Find matcha online or at Asian markets and large or specialty supermarkets.
