Simple and tasty. I forgot the sugar, whoops. The only sesame oil I had was light not dark.

I loved the flavor of this dressing. I used seasoned rice vinegar and left out the sugar and used a maui onion instead of green. Delicious! Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag Game 2011.

We liked this & thought it a nice change for cucumbers. I know I'll be making it again. I appreciate the low amount of sugar, but that it stioll provided lots of flavor. I added a few red pepper flakes. Made for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef.
