I was making Spinach Salad for dinner and wanted to make a Poppy Seed Dressing but only had Black Sesame Seeds… so I improvised. And was happily surprised it came out really yummy.
I have never tried making Black Sesame Seed Dressing before and usually buy Poppy Seed Dressing, however this dressing was very easy to make.
Black Sesame Seed Salad Dressing
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup sugar or honey
1 small shallot
1 tablespoons Black Sesame Seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 cup Canola Blended Oil
In a electric blender place vinegar and sugar mix until the sugar is mostly dissolved. Peel the shallot and place into the blender with Black Sesame Seeds, salt, and ground mustard. Turn on and blend well.
With a steady slow stream, pour the oil into the dressing while the blender is still going. Stop when all the oil has been incorporated.
Transfer to a covered container and store in the fridge for several weeks. The dressing will separate as it sits; shake to recombine before using.
