So you bought a bottle of teriyaki sauce to marinate your meat, and now that you’ve savored that delicious grilled salmon, say, or chicken, you’re left with what? A more-than-half-empty bottle of teriyaki sauce that, if you’re like us, will end up sitting in the fridge, slowly being buried behind other condiments, until months from now you unearth it and finally decide to throw it away.
But wait! If you like teriyaki sauce, then there are lots more ways to use it than just as a marinade. A little goes a long way as a simple dressing for green beans, for example, and you can even whip up a healthy delicious snack mix to have on hand.
No one wants to spend forever making side dishes, but who wants boring vegetables either? A dash of teriyaki sauce, some minced shallots and slivered almonds make for an easy and surprisingly elegant green bean side (the recipe would work great with shelled edamame, too).
This flavorful Thai chicken salad, chock full of fresh veggies (bok choy, carrots, tomatoes and summer squash), isn’t just a great way to use up your teriyaki sauce. Chilled, it’s a perfect summer dinner or a great lunch to pack for work.
Satisfy your mid-afternoon case of the munchies with this Asian-inspired variation on classic Chex Mix, a healthier but no-less-tasty alternative to higher-calorie snacks.
