‘Ponzu’ is a super versatile sauce and it can be used as a salad dressing, too. I often add a small amount of Oil to it. Add Ginger (OR Garlic if you prefer), Onion and Toasted Sesame Seeds as well for extra flavours. Because I always have a bottle of ‘Ponzu’, this dressing is super easy to make. If you don’t have ‘Ponzu’, make ‘Quick & Easy Ponzu’.


About 90ml (4 to 6 Servings)


1/4 cup ‘Ponzu’ *OR make Quick & Easy ‘Ponzu’
1 tablespoon Oil *e.g. Sesame Oil, Sunflower Oil, Canola Oil, etc.
1/2 teaspoon grated Ginger OR grated Garlic
1 to 2 teaspoons Toasted Sesame Seeds *lightly ground
1 to 3 teaspoons Sugar *alter the amount to suit your taste
1/2 to 1 tablespoon grated Onion
Chilli as required *optional

Quick & Easy ‘Ponzu’ (1/4 cup)
1 tablespoon Rice Vinegar
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice *OR extra Rice Vinegar
2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
1/8 teaspoon Dashi Powder *Katsuo (Bonito) OR Kombu (Kelp)

  1. If you don’t have ‘Ponzu’, make Quick & Easy ‘Ponzu’ by mixing all the ingredients.
  2. Mix ‘Ponzu’ and other ingredients very well. *Note: Alter the amount of Sugar to suit your taste. You may prefer no Sugar at all.
