Sesame Dressing 胡麻ドレッシング

Sesame Dressing 胡麻ドレッシング

My son loves homemade sesame dressing more than store-bought pre-made ones. I usually experiment with various recipes and this particular one is my husband's favorite because of the strong vinegar taste. If you prefer really fine and smooth taste, ground the sesame finer. Otherwise it's fine to leave the grounded sesame a bit coarse, it adds a new texture and dimension to the salad.

Japanese Potato Salad ポテトサラダ

Japanese Potato Salad ポテトサラダ

Japanese potato salad is very different from American ones. It uses mashed potato instead of potato chunks and the Japanese mayo gives it a slightly sweet flavor. The typical ingredients contains carrot, ham, cucumber, egg, and corn. Growing up in Japan I always looked forward to dinner if I knew my mother was making potato salad that day.
