Food is always more appealing and tempting when it’s colorful and beautiful to the eye. This Asian Sesame Salad is just that, colorfully beautiful.
Taking the time to create something beautiful makes me feel even better about what I am serving, along with it being such a clean eating and plant-based dish, everyone wins.
This Asian Sesame Salad was a great addition to our 4th of July potluck. It shared the spotlight with some amazing salsa that a friend of ours brought, hoping he will share his recipe. The grilled portobello mushrooms and fresh spring rolls and not so peanut sauce were devoured too. Some Ground Organic Chicken burgers were shared and coconut nectarine popsicles finished the BBQ off.
This Salad was a great way to use up some of my snow peas, of which I can’t seem to keep up with in the picking department.
We enjoyed a BBQ with two of our kids, my son-in-law and grandson little C., and some of their friends. They were kind enough to let us crash their get together. Little C was all decked out in his red, white and blue and charming as ever. The weather was awesome, not a cloud or raindrop in sight. Who could ask for a better 4th of July. To top it off when darkness came we all climbed up on the roof and enjoyed some of Seattle’s best fireworks over Lake Union, we had front row seats, and didn’t have to battle traffic or parking to see them, benefit of my daughter living in the neighborhood.
Forth of July or not this Asian Sesame Salad is bound to be a hit at any get together.
Bursting with flavor, crunchy texture your taste buds will be delighted.
