Peanut Sesame Dressing


Here’s a mega-flavorful and satisfying whisk-with-a-fork in a cup dressing. My favorite thing to put this dressing on is a crunchy cabbage salad. I usually buy a pre-shredded bag of cabbage, and add more salad veggies such as grated carrots, bell peppers, broccoli, snap peas, etc. Garnish with fresh cilantro or basil, if you’re into that.

This is written up as a single serving, because it’s super quick to make at meal time, and I find it brings less mental chatter for me to just make one serving at a time. Feel free to scale up the recipe and make it in large batches to store in the fridge. The weight of one serving will vary depending on how much you thin it with water.

Some of my favorite ways to complete my protein are:

  • 2 oz of cooked, shelled edamame (1/2 protein)
  • 2 oz of quinoa (1/2 protein)
  • 1 oz of peanuts or cashews (1/2 protein)

    Hi Katie,

    I contacted Bright Line Eating about how to prove I signed up under you so I could send you proof (I thought I needed proof of this to receive your ebooks).

    I thought there was only 1 Katie writing cookbooks in Bright Line Eating but it turns out there’s another.

    I’ve no idea how I managed to do this but I signed up under Katie Mae, believing it was you.

    Simone emailed me back (email below), asking if I’d still get the ebooks if I exchanged my order.

    Thanks Katie & sorry for my confusion,

    Warm regards,

    Marion Carroll.

    Hi again, Marion!

    We could exchange your orders for you, but we will need to do a little bit of work together to complete this. First, I would try to contact Katie’s Bright Kitchen to see if you’d still get the eBooks if you’re exchanging your order. Second, you’ll need to use the exact link she’s sending out to register. Then, once you register with the new order, I can refund the first order completely.

    Unfortunately, the registration for our affiliates connect through order forms so we can’t adjust the actual order itself. I hope this helps explain. Please keep me updated and we will get you squared away :-).

    With love and care,
    BLE Customer Support

  4. This dressing is great! I didn’t have rice vinegar and used Ordinary vinegar and it is very good! Thank you so much.
