|Could it have Sesame paste (Tahini) as one of the ingredients or the dressing itself??? |
Tahini separates with the oil rising to the top of the paste as described early in the tread.
It is available in both 'black" from black sesame seeds and white ( a tan colour) from the light coloured seeds.
zhi ma jiang [芝麻酱]) also known as Zhao zi in Guangdong and southern provinces.
I use all the time for my salads but I discovered this before I came to China
It can usually be purchased on supermarket shelves these days, if not then health food stores.
This is popular as a condiment for Hot Pot and other meat dishes.
Origins of the Sesame Seed not clear but Middle East most likely as it was used for centuries as an oil for lamps.
<While the exact circumstances surrounding sesame's arrival in China may be lost to history, there's no doubt that today it is a mainstay of Chinese cuisine. Toasted sesame seeds are sprinkled on salads, sesame paste is added to sauces, and delightfully aromatic sesame oil is used to flavor everything from dips to marinades.>
Let's know if this is what it was..........................
