I’ve had the opportunity to create another recipe with Ken’s Steakhouse Simply Vinaigrette! This time, I am using their Asian dressing and it is amazing! So many vibrant flavors of ginger, molasses and soy sauce, just to name a few. I created Asian style meatballs using the vinaigrette as one of the main ingredients. I also added leeks and water chestnuts for some crunchy texture. Since it’s such a bold flavor, I decided to make them in a smaller appetizer size meatball. I couldn’t eat just one though, so there goes that theory!

FUN FACT: What exactly is a water chestnut anyway? Is it a nut at all? The answer is NO! It’s actually what’s called a “tuber” vegetable that grows under water in the mud! The water chestnut is widely used in Chinese dishes. They are also a good source of fiber!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut leeks and place in colander to rinse. They carry a lot of dirt so make sure to wash thoroughly. I gave them a rough cut first so I could wash the dirt off easier, then proceeded to chop once they were clean. Place in large bowl.
