  • 8 ounce Mason Jar


  • ¼ cup sesame seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons tamari
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • ½ cup olive oil

  • Toast sesame seeds in a dry pan on medium heat, for 3-5 minutes until golden brown. Set aside to cool.
  • Pour all ingredients ( ginger, garlic,red pepper flakes, maple syrup,tamari, rice vinegar, sesame oil, lime juice and olive oil) in an 8 oz mason jar.
  • Shake mason jar until ingredients are incorporated. Add in the cooled sesame seeds and stir. Taste and adjust spices to taste.
  • Refrigerate the dressing for about 15 minutes to allow flavors to meld or until ready to use.


  • You can substitute honey for the maple syrup in the recipe if you prefer and soy sauce for the tamari also sriracha for the red pepper flakes.
  • For even more flavor you can use fresh ginger and garlic but the dry ingredients save time!
  • The dressing will separate over time so be sure to shake or stir before dressing the salad.
  • Store any leftovers of the dressing in a mason jar in the refrigerator for 7 days. Dressed salad should be consumed immediately after preparing or salad ingredients become soggy.
