Summer Salad Dressing with Sesame Salt

Recipe serves 4

This beautifully simple Summer dressing goes a long way to hitting salad satisfaction. Truly this dressing will satisfy in any season, and the accompanying sesame salt called gomasio from the macrobiotic tradition of Japan, is great on salads, grain dishes or right out of the palm of your hand. This dressing was a huge favorite at our recent yoga teacher training course when chef Beatrix Rohlsen dressed her salads using this creation.

2 tablespoons olive oil
Juice from 1/2 a lemon or 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
Bragg Liquid Aminos (or tamari) to taste
1-2 teaspoons nutritional yeast flakes

Sesame Salt (Gomasio)

Dry roast sesame seeds in a frying pan with a dash of sea salt
Stir frequently until seeds are light brown .
Let cool, then grind medium fine in a cuisinart or coffee grinder used just for nuts and seeds.

Place washed lettuce in a salad bowl. Add all dressing ingredients and toss. Add sesame salt (gomasio) for additional flavor and nutrition.
