Grocery Pick: Kewpie Deep-Roasted Sesame Dressing

I'm a big salad fan!

It's simply because my parents trained us to appreciate eating vegetables at a very young age that a meal at home is not complete without having veggies. What I love most though is having bowls of fresh lettuce and arugula mixed with my favorite ingredients -- kani sticks, chopped sweet mangoes, nuts, shrimps and mushroom!

Of course, what makes or breaks a bowl of salad is the dressing! Paul and Mommy loves vinaigrette dressings while I still love the creamy ones. So much for wanting to eat healthy by having salad dinners! I love my Caesar, Ranch, Asian...you name it!

Last Friday, while having dinner at my in-laws, I was able to try a new salad dressing that was so fragrant and good that I just ended up having loads of salad and grilled lamb for dinner. It's a Japanese Deep-Roasted Sesame Dressing  and is said to be made of wheat, eggs, soybean and lots of sesame oil! It's from the same company called Kewpie that also makes those delicious Japanese mayonnaise that local restaurants would use for their California Maki and Kani Salads.

I loved it so much that I immediately made a short trip to the newly-opened Jash Mart along Wilson street where I was able to get my very own bottle. Since we were out of fresh lettuce last night, Paul and I opened a bag of potato chips and used the Deep-Roasted Sesame Dressing as dip! Yum! :)

I will try to experiment and see what else can I do with this delicious salad dressing.

How about you? What's your favorite salad dressing? :)


  1. Will have to include this item on our grocery list. Hope supermarkets here in the south carry this :)

  2. THAT'S MY FAVORITE DRESSING. I always buy it in Japan when I lived there. And I always remember to buy a couple for when I come back. I didn't know they sell it here. Thank you :)
