And best of all, it’s really quite simple: add a bag of chilled mixed lettuce greens to a bowl, then dress with a dastardly simple dressing made with sesame oil(s), rice vinegar, lower sodium soy sauce, and a bit of sugar, sprinkle it all with white sesame seeds (one does want a hint of festive), and serve.
Oh! You want details?
•5 or 6 tbsp rice vinegar
•1 tbsp low salt soy sauce
•3 tbsp sugar*
•2 tsp sesame oil**
•White sesame seeds
*As always, you can reduce the sugar called for, though with this dressing, I don’t think it was too, too sweet; or, you could try using raw or brown sugar in place of the white.
**I used plain toasted sesame oil for the dressing I made, because that’s what we had on hand, next time, I think mebbe splitting it, one teaspoon each, between the plain and the hot chili.
Empty your salad of choice into a large serving bowl – this was a bag of five lettuce blend, and pop into the fridge to crisp for a bit – I always think lettuce tastes a bit better, and feels a bit crisper after chilling for a while in a glass bowl while you make your dressing.
Add the rice vinegar, soy sauce, and sugar to your blender jar and give a good whizz to blend. Scrape down the sides and, with the blender running, add the sesame oil(s) through the feed tube and blend until emulsified. If you don’t have a blender, just whisk all of the ingredients together until well mixed.
When ready to serve, sprinkle the salad with the sesame seeds, add the dressing, and toss to combine.
Nice. Simple. Fast. Tasty!
