Quinoa, Kale, Avocado, Strawberry and Cherry tomatoes with Roasted Sesame seeds salad - Healthy salad recipes - Starter Recipe

Whenever I travel in the morning I will take salad with fresh vegetable and fruits (this is to get my veg and fruit count for the day.) as I feel more comfortable to take uncooked food from the place I stay VS somewhere outside. In China I tasted this Roasted Sesame seeds sauce sometime ago. I really loved the roasted flavour in it. I am pretty sure it has some Soya sauce, sugar and vinegar as part of ingredients. I tried couple of time but the taste is not the same. This time when I was in China I asked the Chef for the recipe. Guess what I was missing mayonnaise in my ingredients. Finally I managed to get the taste! Yum!.

White sesame seeds - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 teaspoon
