Make this wasabi salad dressing fresh to preserve the wasabi punch. Wasabi loses potency the longer it sits. Wasabi paste can be found in the Asian food section of most major grocers. However, if you can find wasabi powder, this can be much more economical and it has a longer shelf life. Just add water to wasabi powder until a paste forms.
