Not a recipe for food as such, but I’ve lost count of the number of times someone has asked me for the recipe for this. Here in Sydney I was surprised how expensive goma dressing is to buy in Japanese supermarkets. My recipe shows how quick, easy and cheap it is and i guarantee you won’t be able to tell the difference ;-)

By the way, ‘goma’ means sesame in Japanese. This rich dressing can make a plain salad really come to life and is packed full of nutritious goodness.

Ingredients

2tbs white sesame seeds
1/4 onion sliced
1/2 carrot sliced
1 clove garlic
150cc salad oil
50cc rice vinegar
60cc soy sauce
1tbs sugar
1tbs Japanese mayonnaise (or western for this recipe is fine)
1tbs sesame oil

Step 1

Add all the dry ingredients into your blender, then add the oil, soy sauce and vinegar and frappé until all the sesame seeds have been blitzed into paste. Refrigerate, then pour over a salad!
