Gg’s Japanese Sesame Dressing

This is the best salad dressing ever! It goes with everything and is also a great replacement for Goma dip (Shabu Shabu). I love it so much that after I make it, I throw vegetables into the food processor so the residual trickles clinging to the sides don’t go to waste. If I do get too lazy to make my own, the store-bought version suffices but is a tad too sweet for my liking. I fix that with a squeeze of lemon and a drizzle of sesame oil. Make this a little thicker to dunk vegetable sticks in.

Slather & dunk away!

Gg’s Japanese Sesame Dressing Recipe:
(yields about 100ml)


  • 3 tablespoons white sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons Japanese mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar (reduce the amount if you prefer less sour)
  • 1½ tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon mirin
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • Salt (to taste)


  1. Roast sesame seeds gently over a low flame in a pan until just slightly brown. A few of them may start popping.
  2. Remove from heat immediately.
  3. Combine all ingredients and sesame seeds in a food processor and blitz to desired consistency.
  4. Chill in fridge until ready to use.
