This is from Everyday with RR. I’m typing it up for ZWT II. This is a great blend of flavors. It makes a thin dressing. This would also be good with plain rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a nonstick skillet over medium heat, toast the sesame seeds, shaking often, for 2-3 minutes. Immediately remove from the pan.
  2. Combine the toasted seeds with the rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, ginger and tomato and blend. Toss with the salad greens and serve.

A perfect side salad for Asian-style grilled meats! Quick and easy to make, too. I added chopped scallions to my lettuce mixture, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. You could also make a quick, healthy meal out of this, by simply adding leftover cooked chicken, beef or shrimp. Cucumbers would be nice in this as well. I will try that. Thanx for sharing!

This was just okay for us. I love all of the ingredients used in the dressing, so I thought I would really enjoy it. As written, the soy sauce and rice vinegar overpower the other dressing ingredients and I was unable to taste anything else. I would suggest adding more sugar and sesame oil and toning down the vinegar and soy sauce, especially if you prefer dressings that are a little sweeter. Thanks for posting!

AWESOME recipe! The dressing is perfect! I added some mandarin oranges and sliced almonds to the salad. The dressing is excellent over some sticky calrose rice too!
