Salad Greens with Spicy Peanut-Sesame Dressing

home garden lettuce greens sesame dressing vegetarian salad

We harvested the first bunch of salad greens from our garden this year. I wanted to make a spicy version of sesame dressing for the salad. The dressing is quite rich, so I used just a little to wet the greens before serving.

Ingredients for the dressing:
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp Tahini (sesame seed paste)
1 Tbsp chunky peanut butter
1 tsp soy sauce or ponzu
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp Habanero sauce (or any favorite hot sauce)
1 clove of garlic, put through a garlic press
¼ cup hazelnut oil (or olive oil, or just canola oil, if you prefer)

Whisk all the ingredients together. Adjust to taste. Save unused portion in the fridge for up to a week.

    looks so lovely! Great pictures, as usual. How do you get this photo effect - looks great - mine end up as glossy images, and I don't like them...

    I like the softness your images have, and how do you do it? Do you use photoshop or is it a special setting on your camera? How do you get text on your picture - does flikjr offer those features?? Please, need help! Of course, take your time. I don't plan to get near my food blog anytime - bye!
