Salad Days with Kewpie Japanese Roasted Sesame Dressing

Kewpie Roasted Sesame Japanese Dressing

I’ve been trying to condition myself for yet another drastic lifestyle diet change. My future posts are all food, the best for the coming holiday season and all the best cakes in Manila, so I plan to eat only herbage like a goat for now.

The first day of the FoodPrints shoot last week was at the Farmer’s Market. I found the team filming Appetite editor-in-chief Nina Daza-Puyat buying mussels for her paella, a few minutes before they wrapped up the shoot for the next location, which is her older brother’s house. Nina dropped by the Korean-Japanese Masan Grocery to buy Japanese rice. Spotted roasted sesame dressing on one of the shelves. I bought a 210-ml bottle ‘coz it’s my first time to try it.

The diet coffee my friend saw on the Oprah show arrived just in time for my planned salad diet. I’ll tell you about it if it works. So far, in 3 days, shorts are falling, promise.

Going back to Kewpie, it is great with virtually anything, even shrimps and fish, but I had it on my lettuce-dragonfruit-cucumber-papaya concoction twice today. It’s a zestful mixture of creamy Japanese mayonnaise, vinegar, ground sesame seeds, salt, sugar and sesame oil.

I found an easy recipe however. The nice thing about DIYs is you can alter the recipe to suit your taste and needs.
