Light and Creamy Toasted Sesame Asian Dressing

***NOTE: This dressing will store in the fridge for up to a week.***

Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 2 cups
Recipe adapted from my sweet sister-in-law Rachel Eskelson

3/4 C mayonnaise (I use Best Foods Light)
1/2 C apple cider vinegar
1/4 C soy sauce
3/4 C sugar
1/2 t salt
2 T minced garlic
1/2 C peanuts (dry roasted)
1/4 t sesame oil
1 T toasted sesame seeds
pinch red pepper flakes

1. Grab some mayonnaise. I like to use this Best Foods Light. It has much less fat than regular mayo and tastes great. Measure out 3/4 cup and spoon it into your blender.
2. Add 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/4 cup of soy sauce, 3/4 cup of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
3. Peel and roughly chop 2 tablespoons of fresh garlic. Add it to the blender.
4. Mix everything together for about 1 minute.
5. Add 1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts, cover the blender and let it mix for several minutes, or until the peanuts are finely chopped and have blended in a bit. You will still have a few  tiny pieces, that's okay.
Add 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil, 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds, and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Mix just for a few seconds more and you are ready to roll. 

Store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
