So Good That You’d Want To Drink It from a Shot Glass
I know that when I suggest salad dressing in a bottle, many foodies will roll their eyes. But before you turn your back on me, you need to know that Kewpie Deep Roasted Sesame Dressing is something special. Like many of you, I make my salad dressing with fresh, good-quality ingredients. I go to olive oil and vinegar tastings every year before selecting a region or brand that I’ll use on my salads.
The first time I tried Kewpie Deep Roasted Sesame Dressing was at Emmy and Ben’s dinner party in Taipei. It took one bite of salad for me to notice the dressing’s rich sesame flavor, a savory burst with a hint of natural sweetness, all incredibly light. I asked Emmy how she made her dressing and expected to hear a long list of ingredients and some advanced culinary techniques (which my friend certainly possesses). To my surprise, Emmy went into her kitchen and returned with a ready-made bottle. I tasted the salad dressing by itself and it was unique and delicious.
One Kewpie Deep Roasted Sesame Dressing, Multiple Uses
This dressing’s flavorful sesame taste reminds me of the sesame noodles and dumplings I often eat at Chinese restaurants. So I decided to experiment with Kewpie Deep Roasted Sesame Dressing by adding it to different foods: noodles, dumplings, tofu and coleslaws. I used it as a sauce for noodles (pasta), a dipping sauce for pan-fried tofu, mushrooms, fish and meat, and I marinated coleslaw and cold tofu with it. Everything turned out delicious—this is a truly versatile dressing.
Here’s one simple yet tasty recipe that takes only 3 minutes to prepare.
