It may seem strange to use olive oil in an asian dressing but olive oil (along with coconut, which cannot be used for dressings) is the healthiest oil. The amount of oil in ratio to the other ingredients is small enough that it shouldn’t affect the taste but you could use another oil if preferred.
Tamari is the healthier version of soy sauce, made in the traditional manner. Today’s commercial soy sauces have unhealthy additives and are very high in sodium. An organic tamari will be naturally fermented, lower in sodium and free of unnecessary additives.
Sesame oil gives this dressing its distinctive nutty flavour. Makes enough for one large single serving of salad, or a medium table salad.
1 tbsp olive oil or other cold-pressed oil such as grapeseed
1 1/2 tsp sesame oil
2 1/2 tbsp organic white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp organic tamari
1 1/2 tsp raw honey or organic maple syrup
I like to make my salad dressings in a bowl with a small whisk, but another easy method is to put everything in a jar and shake it until emulsified.
