Japanese Roasted Sesame Dressing

About This Recipe:

Roasted sesame dressing is the best part of the salads at most Japanese restaurants. The dressing has so much flavor from toasting the sesame seeds, which brings out a strong, nutty flavor. I decided to use the sesame dressing in a shroom grain bowl, with sautéd kale and barley. But his would also be great over Romaine lettuce, shredded carrots, and tomatoes for a simple side salad like at a Japanese restaurant.


Ingredients (2 servings)
-2 tbls white sesame seeds
-2 tbls Kewpie mayo
-1 tsp soy sauce
-1 tsp rice wine vinegar
-1 tsp sesame oil
-1 tsp white sugar
-2 tsps water

Instructions (10 minutes)
1. In a small pan over medium heat, add in the sesame seeds and toast for 3-4 minutes until they become dark brown (but make sure they do not burn.)
2. Add the toasted sesame seeds to a food processor, and grind until a fine powder forms.
3. Add in the rest of the ingredients (the mayo, soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, sugar, and water,) and pulse until a thick dressing forms.
