This Toasted Sesame Dressing is the perfect asian-inspired dressing for salads, wraps, rice or noodle bowls. Calling for only slightly more than a handful of ingredients, means you can whip this up in minutes! Yields 3/4 cup and will serve 6 (2-tablespoon) servings. If you like extra dressing, consider making 1-1/2 or 2 times the recipe.
looking for the perfect sesame dressing?
I’ve got you. This dressing is slightly sweet, toasty and nutty with some ginger and garlic flair. And if you keep a well stocked fridge and pantry of some standard asian ingredients, you’re already ahead of the game.
Similar to my sesame chicken recipe I posted yesterday, it calls for toasted sesame oil, coconut aminos, ginger and garlic (to name a few) and one of my not-so-secret tips to creating quick and easy dressing and marinades is to use pre-grated fresh ginger and garlic. You can find these in the produce section of your grocery store.
To Make This Toasted Sesame Dressing You Will Need:
- rice vinegar – Adds tang to the dressing.
- toasted sesame oil – Gives this dressing a toasty warm flavor.
- olive oil – Adds flavor and helps balance the acidity.
- coconut aminos – Can substitute with low-sodium soy sauce or tamari for gluten free. (more on coconut aminos below)
- maple syrup – Lends sweetness and subtle flavor.
- garlic (grated) – Lends distint punchy flavor.
- ginger (grated) – Lends a pungent, spicy and sweet flavor.
- tahini – Lends flavor and gives the dressing delicious creaminess.
In a glass jar or container with a tight-fitting lid, measure and add 3 tablespoons rice vinegar, 2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil, 2 tablespoon olive oil, 2 tablespoons coconut aminos, 1 maple syrup, 1 tablespoon each grated fresh ginger and garlic and 1 tablespoon tahini.
Secure the lid.
And shake well to incorporate. Now it’s ready to use!
