Tips

EDITOR'S NOTE: Always dress salad greens just before serving so they won't become soggy. Don't overdress salads. Too much dressing will weigh down ingredients and mask their flavor.

This was SO good, so much better than bottled dressing and better than a restaurant. I DID make some changes though, just to suit my own taste. Instead of 1/2 cup canola, I used a 1/4 cup canola and 1/4 cup dark sesame oil. I added about 1 1/2 TBS peanut butter to give it more substance and about 1 tsp cayenne pepper for some heat. I omitted the chopped peanuts and the green onion, but still used the sesame seeds. It turned out so flavorful and it's my favorite dressing now. Read More

This is probably our all time favorite recipe from this site, and I've tried many! I've been looking for a healthier sub. for our regular Ranch standby and nothing has quite stuck, but this was just perfect! My parents wont eat a salad without it. It has that perfect Asian/gourmet taste. It is perfect without those whopping 100 calories per 1 Tbs. of Ranch! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for this wonderful recipe! Note: I add ground ginger and honey to taste! Read More

This recipe is so awesome! I was making dinner for my husband and he totally loves it. Although, I didn't have green onions and chopped peanuts, I substituted red onion with the green onions (i used 1/2 tablespoon) and then i didn't have peanuts too so i substituted it with 2 tbsp jif creamy peanut butter. It was still delicious! Read More

This is a fabulous dressing which is now favourite in our house. The only thing I changed was that I decreased the amount of sugar to 1/8 cup. I think the other wonderful flavours of this recipe shine through a little more with the decrease in sugar. Also, I chopped the onions and peanuts in my food processor and then added the rest of the ingredients. Very fast and less mess. Thank you for such a grat recipe!! Read More

So good and easy to make. I love it on chicken salad but it is so good I have poured it onto pasta too! Especially tasty with broccoli slaw, I am salivating just thinking about it.Thanks for the wonderful recipe. Buy the already toasted sesame seeds in the Asian Foods Section at the Grocery Store!

I made this with a few changes. I used peanut oil instead of canola, 5 TBSP of the rice vinegar, 1 TBSP peanut butter instead of 1/4c of chopped peanuts, used about 1 tsp of soy sauce instead of salt, no green onions, cut back on the sugar due to the peanut butter, used white pepper, and about 1/4 tsp of ground ginger. Come to think of it, my recipe didn't really resemble the original very much. But it was YUMMY! Read More

I used this over fresh spinach, bacon and hard boiled eggs, it was very tasty - not as sweet and overpowering as the standard spinach salad dressing. I used white wine vinegar and mixed nut sundae topping and it turned out great. I look forward to trying it on various kinds of salads. Read More
