Avocado, Lettuce, Sunflower Seeds Salad with Japanese Sesame Dressing


Sometimes get tired about thousand island dressing, Italian dressing, or maybe French dressing on your salad? Perhaps have a change, sometimes.

I super often use Japanese sesame dressing as well as the Japanese styled mayonnaise if compare to those bottled Western styled ones. Japanese mayonnaise comes with a bold egg-yolk flavour plus on a sweet side. And Japanese sesame dressing is a creamy toasted sesame dressing with a trace of vinegar and light soy sauce savory taste. You would definitely find these two in my fridge. Very handy. No worry if have no time to whisk or to shake our own dressings.

This is one of my super simple and quick salad: the Avocado, Lettuce, Sunflower Seeds Salad with Japanese Sesame Dressing.

Avocado, Lettuce, Sunflower Seeds Salad with Japanese Sesame Dressing
1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, sliced
1 small butter lettuce
10 red crunchy cherry tomatoes, halved
1 TBsp sunflower seeds, freshly toasted
1.5 TBsp golden raisins
Japanese sesame dressing (I use Kewpie, or else Mizkan)
Japanese mayonnaise (Kewpie brand) *
Servings: 3

Note: * For a lighter version, replace mayonnaise with low fat plain yogurt.

Chilled the salad, make necessary cutting. Toast the sunflower seeds.

Divide all the ingredients into half and layering on serving bowl: scatter the lettuce, then avocado slices and cherry tomatoes, sprinkle the golden raisins and toasted sunflower seeds. Layer the balance half of ingredients.

Top with adequate amount of sesame dressing and mayonnaise. Serve immediately.


I had it with my mashed potatoes. Yummy!

Even my meat-eater father said, “This one’s very nice!”
