Oriental Salad Dressing Recipes with Sesame Oil

This oriental salad dressing keeps in the refrigerator for up to a week so do not worry that the recipe makes too much because you will definitely use it all during that time. Rice wine vinegar is available in most grocery stores but make sure you buy regular rice wine vinegar and not seasoned rice wine vinegar because that is sweetened. While it is good in some recipes, it would be no good in oriental salad dressing recipes because it makes them too sweet, even if you leave out the sugar.

You can get sesame oil in most grocery stores too, usually with the other oils. If you like, you can use two tablespoons of regular sesame seed oil and a teaspoon of toasted sesame seed oil, to give this oriental salad dressing a nuttier flavor. You can find toasted sesame seed oil in the oriental section of the grocery store.

Serve this over salad greens or toss it with a thawed bag of mixed seafood and then serve that over greens perhaps with some chopped pineapple, bell pepper strips and bean sprouts on top. Add a small handful of cilantro and you have a wonderful lunch or appetizer. You can make this dressing quickly and easily, in fact in about five minutes.
