  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon agave nectar

Salad Greens:

  • 1 Romaine Lettuce
  • 2 cups of mixed greens
  • 1/2 cup of edamame (cooked & cooled according to package instructions) 
  • 1/4 red sweet pepper, thinly sliced


Salad Dressing:

  • 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.
