Peanut Sesame Dressing ...Versatile and Delicious!
It's the well balanced ingredients in this Peanut Sesame Dressing that make it a "keeper" recipe in our kitchen!
The dressing is perfect aside a tray of fresh vegetables or drizzled atop a salad...
This evening we'll be enjoying the dressing with some leftover Hoisin Chicken we cooked on a charcoal grill...
...asparagus, scallion and sliced red peppers will complete the meal.
I thought about photographing the finished dish...but make no mistake...
It's the Peanut Sesame Dressing that hands down, "Steals the Show!"
Peanut Sesame Dressing
The dressing recipe adapted (almost completely) from Asian Chicken Salad with Red Peppers and Asparagus HERE on The Food Channel Website
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons dark sesame oil
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoons fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1 1/2 tablespoons black sesame seeds, toasted
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter (I used All Natural)
Add all ingredients to a medium size bowl. Whisk together well until the peanut butter gets completely mixed in and incorporated.
