SIMPLE WASABI & SESAME YOGURT DRESSING

Barb Hodgens

Posted on August 14 2018

A delicious & healthy Japanese style dipping sauce or mayonnaise.

Spice up almost any dish with this easy and delicious Japanese style yogurt dressing. It is perfect for dipping or as a mayonnaise. It’s divine with salmon or pretty much any sort of fish. It is simply heavenly on chicken too. You could even drizzle it on homemade burgers or toss it into a salad.

With half a teaspoon of wasabi, the taste is mild so if you like a touch more zing, add a little extra after it has chilled a while. The flavours take some time to pop, so I recommend chilling the sauce for at least an hour before re-tasting. Stays fresh for up to a week.

Wasabi yogurt can be made with traditional dairy yogurt, such as 24-hour yogurt made with cow’s milk, raw milk or goat milk as well as non-dairy coconut yogurt.

Ingredients:

½ cup homemade yogurt (coconut or dairy)
½ teaspoon wasabi paste (or more to taste)
2-3 teaspoons of finely grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon of raw honey or maple syrup (more to taste)
Zest of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon of sesame seeds
Pinch of salt 

Method:

  1. Heat the sesame seeds in a pan on your stove top.
  2. Stir continuously until golden brown then remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
  3. Combine all the ingredients in a ceramic or glass bowl and blend to form a consistent smooth dressing.
  4. Chill until required.
