sesame dressing

this is similar to salad dressings you may have had in japanese restaurants. it lends itself well to simple green salads and to cucumbers and carrots and avocados and scallions and combinations of those. there are endless variations of this dressing, some have no miso, some have ginger, some have dashi, some have sake. go ahead and try it. mix and match. thinner, thicker. find the one you like the best. i am crazy for japanese food so we use this dressing whenever we make japanese style dishes at home and we need a salad to go with.

sesame dressing
2 TBSP tahini or sesame paste
1 TBSP soy sauce
1 teaspoon white miso
2 TBSP rice vinegar
1 tsp brown sugar or agave nectar
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
