"Perfect sesame dressing for Chinese chicken salad. Add a splash of hot sauce if you like it spicy."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

seasoned rice vinegar
white sugar, or to taste
toasted sesame seeds
Next time I will try less oil and honey instead of sugar.
The dressing was very easy to make, but tasted horrible. I couldn't taste anything but oil. I tried using ground mustard to help to keep the oil from seperating from the rest of the ingredients, but was unsuccessful. I had even tried to make it more flavorful by adding additional soy sauce and rice vinegar, but that didn't make it taste any better either. I would not make this again.
I did change this recipe a bit, but I'm giving this a good review because the base is good. I didn't have any sesame oil on hand so I blended some sesame seeds in olive oil and used that. I also added some ground mustard. Another reviewer mentioned that it separated quite a bit. Mustard is an emulsifier so it keeps the oil and vinegar from separating and doesn't change the flavour too much.
This doesn't emulsify, and I thought it was a bit on the oily side. If I were to make again, I'd cut back on the olive oil. The flavor is good, the dressing just separates too easily.
This recipe was really good and I didn't find that it did not emulsify, but before I even saw the reviews, my first thought was honey, not sugar. I don't use sugar very often, but always have honey on hand so that is the first change I made. I would also cut down a bit on the olive oil but only because I only have EVOO in the house and for dressings its a little bitter. Just add a tad more sesame (I love sesame!). Thanks for this recipe.
It definitely has way too much olive oil. I only put in 6 tablespoons of olive oil and I still thought it was too oily. I do love sesame dressing so I'll try this again. Next time I'll only use 5 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of sugar.
