Sesame Ginger Dressing

Oh my goodness, you guys. I initially saw this dressing as a means to an end. I knew I needed cabbage in order to not doom myself for the year, and my grocery store didn’t have wonton wrappers so I decided to make this salad. This sesame ginger dressing was suggested so I just decided to go for it. So. Freaking. Delicious. I wanted to eat this with a spoon! All of the flavors are perfect together, and I just couldn’t get enough. You should make this. You should make this immediately. Here’s how:


Sesame Ginger Dressing


  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 4 inches fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

Peel the skin off the ginger and grate into your blender using a small holed grater or zester. Slice the garlic thinly if you don’t have confidence in your blender’s ability to blend it thoroughly. Add the garlic and the rest of the ingredients to the blender. Blend until emulsified and no big pieces of garlic remain. Makes about 1.25 cups.

The only one that’s tricky to find and a little on the pricy side is the tahini, but you really can’t make this dressing without it. And hey! Once you have some tahini you can make hummus to your hearts content! Mmmm, hummus. I’ll give you a recipe for that eventually if you don’t already have one.

ImageAfter you’re done admiring the layers, blend away to your heart’s content! This post brought to you by Magic Bullet! Haha, jokes. I didn’t even position the blender that way on purpose, but it worked out so perfectly.


Taste, then do a double take at the dressing you just made and fight the urge to go at it with a spoon. You’ll need it later for this! Now please excuse me while I look for other things to slather this on.
