Sesame Vinaigrette

Happy Leap Year! Did you know that Disneyland is open for 24 hours today?

My Swiss cousin created this delicious, gluten-free, agave-sweetened Sesame Vinaigrette. I love the flavors and its aromatic sweetness! She uses this dressing literally every day on her dinner salad, and since she’s introduced this salad dressing to me, I’ve eaten it almost every day as well (lunch or dinner) because it’s THAT good. Sometimes I’ll drizzle it over steamed vegetables. So guilt-free good!


  • 1/4 c olive oil
  • 1-2 tbsp sesame oil (the dark kind with the strong sesame aroma)
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1-2 tsp agave nectar (depending on how sweet you want it)

Put it all in a jar, cover it and give it a good shake. It should thicken and coat your greens* very nicely.

(*The secret to this salad is the kind of greens you’ll be pouring this dressing on. Make sure you toss in chopped cilantro and chopped green onions to whatever salad greens you’re using. It just enhances the flavors in the dressing.)
