Perfect Asian Style
Orange Sesame Dressing

This Orange Sesame Dressing is Oriental styled and imparts that Asian sweet and tart combination.
This orange dressing is best made in advance, so that it can sit and let the flavours blend together.

This simple vinaigrette recipe is great on any green salad recipe or use it to liven up your vegetable salad recipes or pasta salad recipes. It is even really good for marinating fish.

The orange flavour combined with the tartness of the vinegar and soy sauce create an unmistakable Oriental dressing.

For such a tasty and versatile dressing, you will want to keep some handy.

Recipe for Orange Sesame Vinaigrette


  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) dark roasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) orange juice
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) mustard
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) ginger - finely grated
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) green onion - diced
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) sesame seeds


1. Place all the ingredients in a medium sized bowl and using a wire whisk blend all the ingredients together to form a smooth consistency.

2. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours to allow the flavors to blend before using it on your salad.

3. You can reserve some green onions and sesame seeds to use as garnish, if you wish.

4. Store any left-over Orange sesame dressing in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed container. I use small mason jars for this.

Yield: Makes 1 cup.
