"This is such an easy vinaigrette to prepare, and delicious over a mix of fresh greens. Toss with Chinese cabbage, shitaki mushrooms, shredded carrots, water chestnuts, cucumbers, bean sprouts, snow peas, etc., are just some of my favorites; or, use a mix of your favorites. Add some grilled shrimp, pork, or chicken to make it a complete dish."

Step 1

Sesame Seeds ... In a dry saute pan, add the sesame seeds and toast on medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Once you begin to smell them, they should be done. You just want them light brown. Make sure to keep an eye on them, they go very quickly. Set to the side to cool.

Step 2

Dressing ... Add all the ingredients to a small bowl and whisk well. This will last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.

Step 3

Serve ... Over your favorite greens and salad fixings and ENJOY!

This is a great Vinaigrette recipe, not too heavy and not too vinegary and just the right amount of sweetness. I drizzled this over a romaine and chicken breast salad and YUM!!!! Made for the Alphabet Soup Recipe Tag Game.
