‘Wafu’ in Japanese literally translates to ‘Japanese style’, so when you hear wafu dressing, it means Japanese style dressing.

Simple right?  Well, the ingredients in this addicting dressing are also quite simple consisting of only a few ingredients .

Standard wafu dressing consists of soy sauce, rice vinegar, mirin (sweet Japanaese sake) and some kind of oil.

But for this recipe, we changed it up a bit while still keeping true to that addicting wafu taste.

The inspiration for this wafu dressing actually came from the Japanese family restaurant which I used to work at during my teenage years.

It was a really popular among all the customers there and to this day, is probably one of my favorite dressing for all kinds of things!

And while keeping the dressing as authentic as possible, we also tweaked the recipe to make it as low-carb/keto as possible.  Very little changes were made from the original recipe so I’ m sure you are going to love this Japanese wafu dressing!

For this dish, the special ingredients you would need are Ponzu, Toasted Sesame Seeds, Swerve/Monkfruit and Japanese sake.  All these can be picked up on Amazon (aside from Japanese sake) or a local Asian/specialty Supermarket.

Note – for the Ponzu, we actually recommend using Mizkan Ponzu but the ones on Amazon are way over priced.  So if you can, just pick it up at a local Asian supermarket for a much more reasonable price.

Now, what are you waiting for?  Let’s get dressin!
