With all the nice, fresh produce of summer, I just had to make some salad. Looking around the fridge, I saw lots of salad options and no salad dressing. No worries, I'd just make my own. I asked James what kind of dressing he wanted, and he immediately responded, "That Asian sesame one." It's one of our favorites, and I'm surprised I hadn't shared it before! I used mostly powdered seasonings so I wouldn't have to blend or chop or mince finely, but fresh works too! Just be careful about shelf life - fresh won't last as long, but as tasty as this Asian Sesame Dressing is, you won't have to worry! I also opted for the powdered versions since we like a thicker, more flavorful dressing, and dried can provide more flavor without the extra moisture. If you prefer thinner dressings, you can also add in some oil or water. And another thing - this dressing doubles perfectly as a marinade. Perfect for your Asian inspired cooking!
