Today I wanted a light dinner and chose a green asparagus salad with a sesame oil dressing. I love the taste of sesame oil, particularly in combination with rice vinegar.
First cut and steam 500g green asparagus.
For the dressing mix 1 tablespoon sesame oil, 1 tablespoon rapeseed oil, 2 tablespoons rice vinegar and 2 tablespoons of another mild vinegar (apple vinegar for example).
Add 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds and if you like its taste, add 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce as well.
I had 3 boiled potatoes left from my Röschti and I chopped and added those, too. Then season with pepper, salt and asian spices (I used a Thai curry mix).
To add some colour and sweetness I chopped up and threw in a couple of dried tomatoes together with some coriander leaves.
Lastly, put in the asparagus. Leave to cool and soak in all the flavours.
Serve with a piece of bread. The sauce does not only look like a picture, it tastes a treat, too!
