This vegan Japanese salad and dressings is my absolute favorite!!!!!

Especially when it's summer here, I make this salad over and over again.

My picky kids eat a lot of veggies with this dressing, so I call it a magical dressing, haha!

This vegan Japanese dressing recipe goes especially well with nuts and corn.

You can be creative with what you paired this dressing with and let me know if you find any favorite combinations. I would love to try out your suggestions!

1 avocado

1 cup canned corn

½ cup cucumber, diced

6 cherry tomatoes



6 tablespoons vegetable oil

4 tablespoons onion, grated ( ½ onion)

4 tablespoons Soy sauce

4 tablespoons rice vinegar

2 tablespoons carrot, grated (¼ of carrot)

2 tablespoons sugar

1½ tablespoons tahini

clove garlic


1. In a blender add in the onions, carrots, soy sauce, vinegar, whole clove of garlic, sugar, tahini and vegetable oil. Blend completely.

2. Chop the cucumber into small dice. Do the same thing for the avocado, carrot and tomatoes. Next boil some fresh corn and remove the kernel from the cob or you can just use canned corn. Assemble everything into a bowl. Lastly, add in your favorite nuts.
