Unlike dressing a salad, the longer you let this marinate, the better it gets. This recipe is meant to highlight the garlic scapes that we grow on the farm, but if you're not able to get your hands on them, you can substitue them with a garlic clove or, for a milder effect, three scallions.

Asian Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Asian Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chili peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
