This sweet and sour dressing is great for summer salads with grilled chicken or pork. My favorite is mixed dark greens with strawberries, blueberries, and feta cheese. Keep refrigerated between uses and always shake to mix before use.

The recipe didn't say to toast the sesame seeds so I didn't. They really need to be. I strained the dressing and started over. It was much better. As NanLan suggested adjust the sugar to your liking. For me the half a cup was too much. I would start with a quarter cup next time. Read More
