Spicy Sesame Ginger Thai Dressing Recipe


1 hand fresh ginger,
3 Tbsp. dark sesame oil,
½ cup white vinegar (or rice vinegar),
1 cup corn syrup,
½ tsp. chili flakes,
1 clove garlic, crushed,
1 Tbsp. soy sauce,
1 Tbsp. lime juice,
1 tsp. toasted sesame seeds,
1 tsp. chopped chives,
1 tsp. salt.


Peel and grate the ginger. Place the grated ginger in a pan with the vinegar and lime juice and reduce for 3 minutes. Strain the liquid and return it to the pan. Add the other ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 5 minutes and remove from heat. Let the sesame-ginger dressing cool down for a bit and refrigerate. Toss with oriental mix salad and serve. This salad dressing is suitable for a salad served in a sushi bar.

Ginger is widely used as a spice in many countries around the world, most commonly in Asia. Its strong fragrance comes from the essential oils in it. It can be used in cooking or sliced and pickled as a condiment for sushi. In India ginger is popular as an ingredient for tea. It is steeped with black tea and cinnamon stick, then milk is added for a really delicious chai tea. In Britain and North America fresh ginger is traditionally used for pastries and sweets.
