Executive Chef Stéphane Beaucamp’s Sesame Citrus Dressing


If you ever have the chance to visit the Lake Austin Spa Resort, you’ll find Chef Beaucamp and his gastronomic kitchen filled with all great things.

As it turns out, he left Los Angeles behind, where he had worked for the likes of Elton John, Nicole Kidman, and Charlize Theron, and headed to Austin, Texas to create healthy and delicious options on the menu for the Resort.

He shares with us his delectable Sesame Citrus Dressing, not only great on salads, but also on chicken and fish.

The Makings:

  • ½ cup rice vinegar
  • ¼ cup orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons cup Tamari gluten free soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoons honey
  • ½ tablespoon minced garlic
  • ½ tablespoon peeled and minced ginger
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons dark sesame oil
