Sweet & Creamy
Sweet Sesame Dressing

This Sweet Sesame Dressing is very quick and easy to prepare. It is also a very tasty simple dressing recipe. The Asian flavour of the sesame seeds with a subtle kick from the hot mustard creates a pleasant tasting salad topper.

How sweet is sweet - as sweet as you want it. You control the amount of sugar in this dressing recipe (you could even substitute an artificial sweetener), so you can make it as sweet as you like.

This simple dressing recipe is not a classic vinaigrette since the dressing is fairly thick which makes it all the better to stick to your lettuce.

I also enjoy this sweet dressing on my barbecued chicken and the sesame flavour goes well on many other simple vegetable and pasta recipes.
