Ginger Sesame Salad

Highly fragrant, sweet and pungent, ginger adds plenty of flavor and spice to any dish! Yesterday was salad left-overs! I had some fresh ginger leftover from some sugar-free cookies I had baked, so yes, I decided it would go into a salad! A bottle of toasted sesame oil in the back of my cupboard also beckoned to become part of lunch.

I don’t like using store bought dressings because: they are really bad for you, most of them are disgusting and lets be honest- they are generic. Fresh dressings taste better and are better for you! (Of course the occassional Ranch dressing has to be drizzled on things…) But, for the most part fresh is better and lacking the hundreds of bad calories also. I am partial to vinegars and oils and spicing them up with various flavors. Usually I squeeze lemon juice and balsamic and toss salt and pepper. However, today was toasted sesame seed oil, sesame seeds, some drops of balsamic and about 1 teaspoon+ grated fresh ginger for the dressing! Enjoy!

I am a real health conscious food lover always in pursuit of real, great food! My journey began way back around 2000 when I realized it was time to grow up and eat better. Fast food was not cutting it and staples I grew up on such as burgers and spagetti were getting old. I also began trying a new diet experimenting with what I ate and how I felt as far as energy levels and keeping my skin clear. Since then it has been a rewarding journey in the kitchen trying new fruits and vegetables and tons of fantastic new recipes.
