Sesame Ginger Vinaigrette (with a crunchy salad)

I remember buy this bottle of sesame dressing from some Asian market.  It was pretty tasty. i would drizzle it all over coating everything with that sesame goodness. I went to a crunchy salad. Chopped carrots, bell pepper, almond slices. and to add an extra crunch, instead of croutons I put in ramen noodle. straight from the pack that i crunched up into pieces. In reality those ramen noodles are precooked to help dehydtrate them for packaging. So they're really ready to eat.

Makes 1/3 cup - Serves 2-3

Sesame Ginger Vinaigrette (with a crunchy salad)

3 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 Tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp sugar
1 Tbsp fresh ginger - grated or fine chopped
1/2 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds

Combine all ingredients together.and drizzle of your salad

1 small head of lettuce - chopped
1 carrot - chopped
1 bell pepper - chopped
1/2 c almond slices
1 pack ramen noodles - minus seasoning and crumbled

Toss all the ingredients together and drizzle the vinaigrette over.

Thank you for this dressing!! I've had variations of sesame ginger vinaigrette and just love the flavors, but you know how it is: you develop a favorite and then you can't find it anymore! Now, I can just make my own . . .!

Looks fantastic. I love the ramen in the salad, must give it great texture.

Great salad! I love crunchy salads. And the dressing has all my favorite flavors... I just found out that I shouldn't eat much ginger. But I still add a bit to my dishes; it's so good... :)

That's so clever, crumbling up ramen instead of using croutons. Always looking for ways to get more ramen in my diet ;)

We always used to crunch up top ramen into our Chinese Chicken Salads when we were growing up - so delicious! Will have to try that dressing sometime!

Ameena said...

Yummy...this looks like a good replica of the Chin Chin salad I used to get. Honestly though, this looks much fresher!!

I love ginger vinaigrettes... I also end up buying bottled sesame ginger dressing at the store, but I'm not sure why. I should be making this! Also, thanks for the tip on adding ramen to your salad... I love crunchy noodles, but didn't know those would work.

I'm always looking for good dressings - I eat salad almost every day for lunch. This is a yummy one that I need to try.
