This week I am sharing a shredded zucchini salad with sesame dressing recipe.
This incredibly easy salad dish takes only five minutes to make. However, the taste won’t let you down.
Let’s jump right in!
First, we need to cut the zucchini into shreds.
One of the easiest ways to shred the zucchini or many other vegetables is with a vegetable slicer.
Once the zucchini is ready, next is making the salad dressing. This sesame dressing is a really popular sauce in China. It can be made by mixing together sesame paste, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, toasted sesame seeds and sugar.
This sesame dressing can be used in many other salad dishes as well. I am a big fan of this versatile sauce. You can enjoy it either as a salad dressing or a sauce for cold noodles in the summer.
If sesame paste is hard to find in your area, I recommend substituting it with the tahini sauce.
Here’s another appetizer dish I made with this tasty sesame dressing. Pouring it over soft tofu, you can easily make another popular Chinese dish – sesame tofu!
Drizzle on top hot chili oil for a spicy kick and sprinkle with freshly chopped green onion, this is another tasty summer dish that can be made in no time!
I hope you enjoy this simple and tasty shredded zucchini salad with sesame dressing recipe.
