Asian Sesame Sauce

This Asian sesame sauce was inspired by the traditional sesame dipping sauces popular in East Asia. However I make quite a few adjustments to give this sauce a special and unique flavor which is great in salads, noodles, hot pot and more!

  • Whisk


  • 4 tbsp Tahini
  • 3 tbsp Mayonnaise. I know it sounds weird, but trust me it adds a great creaminess to the sauce.
  • 1 tbsp Ponzu
  • 1 tsp Dark Soy Sauce
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 2 tsp Rice Wine Vinegar you can use apple cider vinegar as a substitute, although it does change the flavor slightly.
  • 1 tsp Fish Sauce
  • 1 tsp Sesame Seeds. More or less, adjust for preferred texture. You can also leave this ingredient out if you want the dressing to be 100% smooth.


  • Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix together with a whisk.
