homemade dressing

I wanted to eat nothing but salad last week because of the heat waves we had (around 100f, 40c!). Oh wait, it’s more like I just didn’t want to use gas stove at all. So I made salad more often than usual, and here are my two favorite homemade dressings so far. One is basic italian, and the other is sesame dressing which you might tried in a Japanese restaurant. Making homemade salad dressing was a bit intimidating at first, but once I tried, it’s easy and the best thing is that we can add or reduce what ever ingredients we want. Ingredients below.
Italian Dressing : 11/2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar, 2 tablespoons water, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 tablespoon onion grated with grater, pinch of salt, pepper and garlic powder
Sesami Dressing : 2 teaspoons soy source, 2 teaspoons vinegar, 2 tablespoons grind sesame seeds, 2 tablespoons Mayonnaise, 2 teaspoons maple syrup
イタリアンドレッシング:オリーブオイル大さじ1強、お酢大さじ2 (今回半分だけバルサミコ酢を入れました)、 水大さじ2、 蜂蜜大さじ1、すりおろし玉ねぎ大さじ1、塩胡椒少々、ガーリックパウダー少々
just pour all the ingredients into the bowl and mix. Please adjust the amounts as you like
This is how we grind sesame seeds in Japan. There is a special bowl for it, but because I don’t have it, I just used regular dish (it’s harder!). I found this video on youtube. or this

    Oh, wow! 40 degrees?? That’s crazy hot~~ but I want it to be that hot right now here at Edmonton, Canada.. I don’t like the chill, haha. We still have quite some winds even though it’s sunny. Salads are definitely perfect for the weather (and healthy too)! Thumbs up!! Thanks for sharing your recipe X
