Avocado sesame salad with creamy Asian dressing

I’ve been trying to recreate the creamy Asian dressing they have in American Airlines first class for quite some time now. Yes, an airline salad dressing may be the best I’ve ever had. And for the record, the flight attendants think so to.  We talk about it every time.  Actually this was my first time trying to make it, but I’ve been thinking about trying it for a really long time. It was a total success- exactly the flavor I was looking for – though it’s not entirely homemade.  I started with this delicious bottle of stuff from the Asian aisle at the grocery store – Miso Ginger Sesame sauce/marinade (I’m sure you can find something similar).   

It is a bit strong tasting, so I modified as follows:


The buttermilk turns it into a really thin and delicious dressing, just like we like them in the Braley house.  I then put together a salad of mixed greens, avocado (s), tomatoes, and toasted sesame seeds (toasted in a skillet on low for a few minutes until golden). Toss with the desired amount of salad dressing (I did not use it all), and it’s just like you’re on a 14 hour flight from DFW to Tokyo.
