Sesame Seed Vinaigrette


Photo Taked by Nicole Ramos

We all have our favorite salad dressings, and this is mine. My mother is an amazing cook, and I learned this recipe from her. I don’t know if people realize just how easy and fast salad dressings are to make. Plus, if you use fresh ingredients the flavors are brighter and you’ll know that the only ingredients in it are there by your design.  This dressing goes well with both savory and sweet salads, although I don’t recommend it on pasta salad (a failed experiment on my own).

3Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tsp Dijon Mustard (ground preferably, the whole doesn’t have the same flavor)
2 tsp toasted sesame seeds


  1. In a pan, over medium heat, slowly toast sesame seeds until lightly brown, set aside to cool.
  2. Mix all ingredients.

Makes 4 servings
