Asian Ginger-Sesame Dressing & an OXO Giveaway! {Closed}

by Jessica on June 15, 2012

Asian Ginger-Sesame Dressing

One of my all-time favorite salads is the ‘Asian Sesame Chicken’ from Panera Bread. It’s filling, healthy and not a huge splurge when it comes to counting my daily Weight Watchers points.

It’s also a salad I’ve tried recreating at home in the past. And while surfing sites the other night, I was lucky enough to come across the recipe from the original creators. With this post, though, I’ve added a few ingredients so that the end result has a nuttier taste. I could seriously drink this dressing by the glassful, it’s that good.

So, when I was generously given the opportunity to test drive one of OXO’s newest products (the fab Salad Dressing Shaker seen above), I knew this was the perfect dressing to start with. And the best part about it, is the ease of use. Prepare, serve and store all in the same sleek bottle… it goes from fridge to table and is even dishwasher-friendly! The wide opening accommodates a range of ingredients and the airtight, watertight and leakproof seal accompanies a one-handed open/close lever that easily flips back to pour.

You’re wanting one right about now, am I correct? Well, good news there, because I received an extra one to give away to one lucky MBH reader! Just leave a comment below and you’re entered. Tell me what dressing you’d make with the shaker or just say howdy! 🙂

And if you’d like extra entries, complete any or all of the following tasks and leave a separate comment for each:

Contest is open to U.S. residents only until Wednesday, June 20th, 2012 at 11:59 pm CST. One winner will be randomly chosen by random.org and announced by Friday, June 22nd.

Asian Ginger-Sesame Dressing 2

Asian Ginger-Sesame Dressing

Yield: 1-1/2 cups

Ingredients

  • 1/4 c smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 c rice vinegar
  • 1/4 c toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp less-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 3/4 c canola oil

Instructions

Pour all ingredients into a shaker and combine. Break up the mixture with a fork or small whisk, if needed.

If you're without a shaker, combine all ingredients except canola oil in a medium mixing bowl with a wire whisk. Once ingredients are combined, slowly pour in the oil while whisking to form an emulsion.

I am currently following Weight Watchers points and I just love the program, I find it easy to keep up with and it really works. I had no what to eat at Panera Bread and we are going there this weekend. Now salads are one of my top choices.

11 Maeghan June 15, 2012 at 12:34 pm

I would love one of these. I’m trying to be good but all of these cookouts mean yummy but not so healthy food. I try to bring a salad of my own and would love to bring it in something where I can limit the proportions, etc. !

12 Maeghan June 15, 2012 at 12:35 pm

Oh! I liked OXO on FB, can’t believe I haven’t done it sooner since I love their stuff!

13 Jen June 15, 2012 at 1:45 pm

This dressing looks great! I can’t wait to try it. My favorite is cilantro-lime vinaigrette!

14 Kristin G June 15, 2012 at 3:00 pm

balsamic vinaigrette!

15 Melissa June 15, 2012 at 3:01 pm

I can’t believe that I haven’t tried this salad at Panera yet…next time, for sure, I will!!

16 Carly June 15, 2012 at 5:03 pm

I’d make a lemon vinaigrette dressing.

I just got back from visiting my sister in North Carolina. She made a delicious vinaigrette while I was there and she sent me the recipe. I haven’t tried to make it yet but I will.
