Wafu dressing (和風ドレッシング, wafū doresshingu), literally "Japanese-style dressing", is a vinaigrette-type salad dressing based on tosazu (a kind of Japanese vinegar), popular in Japan.[1]

The standard wafu dressing consists of a mixture of Japanese soy sauce, rice vinegar, mirin, and vegetable oil. There are many variations flavoured with additional ingredients such as aonori, shiso, grated ginger, katsuobushi, umeboshi puree, wasabi, or citrus fruits such as lemon or yuzu.[2] Those flavoured with sesame oil are often called chūka-fū dressing (中華風ドレッシング), meaning "Chinese style dressing".[3]
