Spicy Pok Pok Som Dressing

I’m loving working with the Pok Pok Som drinking vinegars in recipes these days. They add a balance of unique flavors that really pop and are worth the purchase. Including some drinks we’ll feature in upcoming recipes. There are so many flavors to choose from and play around with, and they also make an excellent dressing here for warm or cold noodles!

This recipe is part of the Wicked Healthy Takeover: Noodles Man that we are excited to team up on with Whole Foods Market … check out Part Two of the series below!

The recipe for this Spicy Pok Pok Som Dressing, featured in the video, is below. To get more of the recipes featured in the video, check out our other Takeover: Noodles Man recipes:
