Sesame Dressing is a mayo based dressing with a burst of sesame flavor that is popular for salad in Japan. It has more calories than soy sauce based dressings, but it tastes so good. There are a lot of bottled sesame dressings at Japanese supermarkets, but it is very easy to make at home.
Sesame Dressing of course goes very well with green salad, but it’s also great on meat, like our picture here. We used the dressing for boiled thinly sliced pork and thinly sliced cucumber. To cook the meat, we dipped the pork in hot water for a few seconds until cooked through (do not over cook). Steamed vegetables are good too. And you may also like it on cold noodles.
You can use ground sesame seeds, but if you would like to have maximum sesame flavor, grind your own sesame seeds.
