Kewpie Synergy

The magic of this salad lies in the KEWPIE Deep-Roasted Sesame Dressing. This premium dressing, crafted with high-quality roasted sesame seeds, adds a depth of flavor and a luxurious texture that ordinary dressings can’t match. By warming the dressing in the same pan used to cook the bacon, you infuse it with the smoky, savory essence of the bacon bits, creating a complex and irresistible flavor profile. The KEWPIE Deep-Roasted Sesame Dressing not only enhances the taste of the salad but also provides a nutritious boost, thanks to the wholesome ingredients used in its production.

Ingredients: Serves 2

  • 1 pkg (6oz) baby spinach salad
  • 2 pieces thick bacon, cut into ½” stripes
  • 2 hard boiled eggs, quartered
  • 4 pcs. mushrooms, sliced
  • ½ cup KEWPIE Deep-Roasted Sesame Dressing
  • ¼ cup candied pecans or walnuts, optional


  1. Prepare the salad: On a large serving plate, arrange the baby spinach leaves, quartered hard-boiled eggs, and sliced mushrooms. Set aside.
  2. Cook the bacon: In a small frying pan, cook the bacon stripes until crispy. Remove the bacon from the pan and transfer it to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess fat. Once cooled, add the bacon to the salad.
  3. Warm the dressing: Remove all excess oil from the frying pan, leaving behind the flavorful bacon bits stuck to the bottom. Pour the KEWPIE Deep-Roasted Sesame Dressing into the pan and stir, scraping up the bacon bits and incorporating their smoky flavor into the dressing. Heat the dressing just until warm.
  4. Assemble and serve: Drizzle the warm KEWPIE Deep-Roasted Sesame Dressing over the prepared salad. If desired, top the salad with crushed candied pecans or walnuts for an extra crunch and a touch of sweetness. Serve the salad immediately, while the dressing is still warm.
