Instant Asian Sesame Dressing
This Asian Sesame Dressing is one of eight ready-to-use salad dressing recipes that I shared in this post: Ready To Use Salad Dressings. Ive been wanting to share a bunch of long shelf life salad dressings for ages and was so glad to finally have an excuse to!
This Asian Sesame Dressing is fantastic. It was originally off the back of a packet that Ive adapted slightly to my taste. The reason its one of my most used dressings is because it literally takes 30 seconds to make grab a few bottles, eye ball the measurements, shake and youre done.
No need to mince garlic, grate ginger of chop fresh herbs. This Sesame Dressing is simple and its perfect just as it is. However, you can of course doll it up as you wish! Its a fantastic base recipe.
I literally use this dressing for all things Asian and Asian-esque. But one of my favourite ways to use this dressing is with shredded cabbage and carrots. So an Asian slaw, if you will. Especially if you grab a bag of pre shredded cabbage, as I did for these photos .
The other thing I use it for is sashimi salads. Leafy greens, cherry tomatoes and some store bought fresh sashimi, topped with crunchy fried shallots and this dressing. Its a 1 minute dinner assembly!
Because this Asian Sesame Dressing doesnt use any fresh ingredients that go off, it has a very long shelf life. I keep it for 3 weeks. I like to keep it in the fridge, just to be safe .
SUCH a fantastic standby dressing! Nagi xx

Asian Salad Dressing Recipe
This Toasted Sesame Asian Salad Dressing is full of flavorful sesame oil, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and honey along with some fresh grated ginger. Then it is finished off with olive oil and blended up for a quick and easy salad dressing that packs a good punch of flavor without adding too many calories to your salad. The olive oil lightens things up because using all sesame oil would be overpowering.
If you have a big bad blender like the Vitamix I own and love, you can certainly use that to blend it up. I honestly prefer just making this in a wide mouth jar and giving it a quick whiz with my immersion blender. That way there is much less wasted dressing along the tall sides of the big blender. Best of all, I can just pop the lid on the jar and easily store it in the refrigerator.
