  • ½ cup Homemade Mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Toasted Sesame Oil
  • 2 tsp White Rice Vinegar
  • 1.5 tbsp Coconut Aminos
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 pinch Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Toasted Sesame Seeds


  • Add ½ cup homemade mayo to small bowl along with roasted sesame oil, roasted sesame seeds, coconut aminos, white rice vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder and a small pinch of cayenne pepper.
  • Whisk until fully combined and emulsified. This can also be done using an immersion blender. 
  • Add creamy sesame dressing into a mason jar and keep in fridge until you're ready to use.


  • Once refrigerated, the dressing will thicken up.  To thin out, whisk in a tbsp of water until desired consistency is reached. 
  • How long does homemade dressing last? This dressing will last up to one week in airtight container in fridge.  Mason jars are great for storing homemade dressing. 
  • This dressing can not be made ahead or frozen since it is not made with preservatives. 
  • How does this differ from Kewpie deep roasted sesame dressing? Kewpie dressing is made with canola oil, soy sauce and sugar which means it contains wheat and soy.  This is a healthy version of sesame dressing because it is paleo, whole30 and keto.
