Sesame Tofu Dressing

James Carrier
Yield Makes 2 1/2 to 3 cups
Notes: This creamy dressing tastes as smooth and rich as one made with mayonnaise, but it is far leaner and higher in protein. Serve it as a dip for raw vegetables or as a salad dressing. Chill airtight up to 1 week.

  • 1 cup seasoned rice vinegar

  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions (including tops)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons Asian (toasted) sesame oil
