Spinach Salad with Sesame Vinaigrette

I've fallen in love with this easy recipe for a super healthy salad from my Cooking Light cookbook.  It's very quick and perfect for a mid-day snack.  I whipped this one up right before tutoring today; I don't want to be a hungry grouch for the poor boy!

Sesame Vinaigrette 

1 1/2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoons honey
dash of salt and pepper

Stir together with a whisk.  Place spinach in a large bowl and drizzle vinaigrette, tossing gently.  Or you can drizzle a tiny bit over a serving of spinach and save the rest of the vinaigrette, a little goes a long way!  

Some ideas for toppings would be grilled red onions (toss with a little sesame oil and cooked until tender), tangerine pieces, feta cheese, etc.   I topped mine with Parmesan and wasn't that impressed ... but sometimes you just have to work with what you have. Pin It Now!
