Roasted Sesame Dressing
Makes 1 cup. Skip the first step if you're using pre-toasted sesame seeds.
- ½ cup sesame seeds
- ¼ cup neutral oil or Japanese mayonnaise
- ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup water
Heat a dry 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Pour sesame seeds in an even layer (about 2 tablespoons). Toast until evenly golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and toast remaining seeds, if working in batches.
Place all the toasted sesame seeds in food processor; blitz for a few seconds. Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth. Add additional water, if needed.
