I love salads, but it’s all about the dressing for me. I’ve been experimenting with various salad dressings but I always seem to migrate toward vinegar and oil mixtures.
I call this a Japanese vinaigrette because of the addition of rice wine vinegar and aji mirin seasoning. Traditional Japanese dressings, however, usually use plain vegetable oil, but I love the flavor sesame oil imparts, so that’s my oil of choice in this version.
This is a quick and easy recipe. Throw all of the ingredients into a bowl, whisk, and serve.
This dressing is delicious with mixed salad greens, over cucumbers, or use it to make one of my many versions of Ahi Tuna Poki.
Give it a try. I think you’ll like it. 🙂
- 1 cup rice vinegar
- ½ cup aji mirin sweet cooking rice seasoning
- ¼ cup white, granulated sugar
- ¼ cup sesame oil
- ¼ cup finely chopped onions
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon salt

- Place all ingredients into a small bowl. Whisk to combine.
- Pour over salad greens, cucumbers, or use as a marinade. This is also a delicious dressing for my version of Ahi Tuna Poki.
