"A lovely Japanese Salad to serve as a side. You can toast the sesame seed before using if preferred, you can also add a little bit more sugar for added sweetness if preferred, and chili is optional. NOTE: To toast sesame seeds, heat a small dry skillet over low heat then add the sesame seeds stirring constantly until sesame seeds are just golden in color and fragrant ~ this only takes about 2 minutes. Transfer to a dish or bowl and let cool."
