Oriental Sesame Dip

Recipe by  

"This soy sauce and sesame flavored dip is great for egg rolls, fresh or fried spring rolls, grilled meats or poultry. Chill or heat before serving. This is also a great dressing for coleslaw -- just toss the slaw with the dressing and chill for up to 3 days. Add some shelled sunflower seeds and some crunchy chow mein noodles right before serving."

Overall, very good! I cut the recipe in half and used low sodium soy sauce and rice wine vinegar. Since I could tell by the recipe the amount of oil was a bit on the heavy side so I used only a Tbsp. of veg oil along with the sesame oil. I also added a pinch of brown sugar and ginger. Perfect with dumplings!

I served this as a dip for beef. Sesame oil is so strong!!! I added some sugar and fresh ginger and it still wasn't very good. Maybe as a dressing this is ok.

Yummy but a little oily.

Thank you! I have been trying to figure out how to make this ever since my favorite chinese restaurant closed down! I was missing the vinegar everytime. This is exactly what I was looking for and easy to make. I also have a feeling that your slaw suggestion is another thing recipe I have been trying to find for years (I had it at a potluck and the woman left before I could ask her for the recipe)I only made a 1/4 batch tonight for 10 potstickers, but I will make the full recipe and try the slaw next week!

I make this often to serve with steamed dumplings. It's easy and very tasty. Just right!

It sounded good but this didn't turn out the way I had hoped. I may try again to see if I can improve it.
