If you follow my dinner plans on Facebook, or my girls’ lunch posts on Instagram, you probably have seen I’ve been on a salad kick lately. That is some because I truly am craving them – I think my body is ready for a spring cleanse. And it is some because in the winter there isn’t a lot of other produce options around here!
This one…is momma’s dressing though.
I know you know by know my love affair with all things Asian cuisine so this dressing has my favorite flavors all whisked together in 2 minutes flat (because I still have a teething baby at my hip – I don’t have time for long drawn out recipes all the time!).

- ½ cup expeller pressed sesame oil (avocado oil works well too)
- ½ cup coconut aminos (this replaces soy sauce - it tastes just like it!)
- 2 TB natural peanut butter or almond butter (Watch the ingredients! Just peanuts and maybe salt! There shouldn’t be other added oils or sugar. If you want a thicker consistency use 3 TB)
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes (more if you like more heat)
- 1 ½ tsp ground ginger
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp onion powder
- Sea salt/pepper to taste (The coconut aminos are naturally salty just like soy sauce – so just be mindful of that – you won’t need much salt!)
- Everything into a small mixing bowl and wisk together!
- Makes about 1 ½ cups of dressing – store in the fridge for weeks. Double up if you want!
