Sesame Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons Chinese sesame-seed paste or tahini
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons light soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice-wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons finely diced ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons superfine sugar or 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 cup Asian sesame oil

In a bowl mix the sesame paste and soy sauce together. Add the vinegar and, while stirring, add the ginger, garlic and sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves, add the sesame oil, and allow to stand for 30 minutes to let the flavors mingle.

Makes about 1 cup
