Chicken Karaage Salad with Sesame Dressing 日式炸鸡沙拉配芝麻酱(强力推荐)

I have always been a big fan of Japanese style salad, mainly because I like the salad dressing very much.  In the past, I had tried to look for a similar type of salad dressing but failed until late spring last year, I found out that my Japanese friend’s daughter likes hydrangea very much so I picked some & sent to their home. To my surprise, this friend handed me a bottle of her homemade sesame salad dressing.  According to her, friends who had tried this dressing have fallen in love with it instantly!



So went I got home, I immediately had a spoon of the sesame dressing & my first reaction was: “This is it! I have found it! This is the type of dressing that I have been looking for so long!” I’m so grateful to her for sharing the recipe with me.

回家後的第一时间试吃了该沙拉酱,有那种味道!当时的反应就像找对配偶一样,是它了!My “Mr Right…sauce!”

(Recipe Source: Miho)
Yields about 750ml Salad Dressing

30g White Sesame Seeds, stir-fried until fragrant
½ Carrot, roughly chopped
½ Brown Onion, roughly chopped
1 Clove Garlic, roughly chopped
50g Caster Sugar
350ml Sunflower Oil(can be reduced t0 330ml)
100ml Brown Rice Vinegar
130ml Light Soy Sauce(can be reduced to 110ml)

Blend all the ingredients in a stick blender.

1. The types of oil and vinegar use may change the taste a bit. Avoid extra virgin oil due to its grassy smell which may spoil the taste of the salad dressing.

2. Salad dressing can be kept in a clean bottle/container up for weeks in the fridge.
