Simple Salad with a Toasted Sesame Ginger Dressing
There are so many wonderful organic greens available in the local grocery store nowadays, and topped with a few edamame soybeans, you practically have a whole meal. Of course, the salad dressing makes or breaks the salad, so today I am going to show you a dressing that really makes this salad come to life.
We also have something to celebrate. Right before the New Year, we hit 5000 subscribers! Yay!!!!!! It’s time to celebrate!!!! And what better way than to try something absolutely different. A pie inside a cake.
Thanks to all my subscribers! I could not do this without your support and continued encouragement. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon Braggs liquid aminos (soy sauce)
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1 garlic clove, finely minced
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
3 tablespoons olive oil
1-2 sliced green onions
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
1/2 teaspoon agave nectar
In a small bowl, add lemon juice, Braggs, ginger, garlic, and agave nectar. Stir to combine. While whisking, slowly add olive oil and sesame oil. When emulsified, stir in green onions and sesame seeds.
If you desire a better emulsified dressing, double the recipe, add everything to the blender, except the oils, sesame seeds and green onion. Slowly add the oils while the blender is running. Stir in green onion and sesame seeds by hand.
