Black Sesame Summer Dressing

30 September 2008 No Comment

This is a light, Asian influenced salad dressing. It works equally well spilled onto a simple bed of lettuce leaves, or a more compex salad. SaladĀ lettuces are especially fresh and abundant in the summer –thus the name.



1 cup


  • 1 shallot
  • 1/3 cup seasoned rice vinegar
  • 2/3 cup seasoned canola oil
  • 1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp. black sesame seeds
  • salt
  • pepper


Peel and mince the shallot and place in the bottom of a large bowl. Add rice vinegar and let site 10 minutes. Whisk in oils until emulsified, and then add sesame seeds. Season to taste with salt and pepper. This dressing works well on a very simple salad, like the Boston lettuce shown here.
