Often I make salads or noodle salads with soy sesame dressing for some fresh and zesty Asian flavor for some cold and healthy dish. I used to purchase sesame dressings from a local supermarket but decided to make my own dressing because of the ridiculously high price for commercial sesame dressings and enhancement of its flavor through home making process.
Ingredients: 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of sesame oil, 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds, 2 teaspoon of lemon vinegar, little sprinkle of dried ginger powder and black pepper, 1 tablespoon of corn syrup, 1 teaspoon of brown sugar
You might want to add corn syrup and soy sauce first just to blend the thick syrup into the watery soy sauce, creating a semi-thick solution suitable for a salad dressing. Of course, if you're health conscious, you can skip the corn syrup part and use the thin version of the dressing although that would be more like a soy sesame vinaigrette, which is really good too.
