Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing

  • Author: Katie Kimball



  • 2 Tbs. apple cider vinegar
  • 23 Tbs. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs. sesame oil (optional) plus extra virgin olive oil (use the code STEWARDSHIP for 10% off at that site!) to make 1/2 cup
  • 2 tsp. sesame seeds, toasted*
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 tsp. ginger


  1. Whisk apple cider vinegar, olive oil, optional sesame oil and soy sauce.
  2. Whiz the garlic and toasted sesame seeds in a mini-food processor until garlic is in small pieces.
  3. Combine and enjoy!
  4. *To toast sesame seeds, put them on a dry cookie sheet in the toaster oven and toast on light once or twice until lightly browned and aromatic. No toaster oven? You could certainly use a regular oven on low heat – just watch the closely every few minutes to make sure they don’t burn. I’m thinking you could also put them in a hot, dry pan and stir constantly until browned, but I haven’t tried that myself.


Store in the fridge (I think?) and try to remember to take it out a half hour before dinner, because the olive oil will solidify when cold.
