Sesame Salad Dressing


The vinegar in this dressing may make it too sour for some. To play it safe, start with 1 tablespoon of rice vinegar and then taste the dressing before adding any more.
Enhance the taste of this dressing by using a 1/2 cup of virgin olive oil. Or sweeten it up with 2 tablespoons of mirin (Japanese rice wine).
If you prefer a creamier dressing, add 2 tablespoons of Japanese mayonnaise or another high-quality mayo. Or, alternatively, pulse the mixture in a blender for 15 to 30 seconds until it's thick and emulsified.
Garlic and ginger are two other welcomed additions for up-leveling the spice (add about a 1/2 teaspoon each).
Drizzle this sesame dressing over thinly sliced beef, pork, fresh tuna, or salmon, all garnished with chopped cucumber. Enjoy it on steamed vegetables tossed with cold noodles. Or use it as an Asian-inspired marinade for chicken, shrimp, or steak. Make an Asian coleslaw by combining shredded cabbage and carrots with the dressing, and then top it with a mixture of crunchy ramen noodles and toasted sesame seeds. You can also use this dressing as a dipping sauce for dumplings or other Asian appetizers.


3 tablespoons white sesame seeds
2 to 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons sugar (brown or granulated)
1 teaspoon sesame oil
