Note:
*To toast sesame seed, cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium heat about 2 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.

For a bit of extra sesame flavor, use 1 teaspoon sesame oil instead of the soy sauce in the dressing.
Look for wide chow mein noodles for a fun garnish for the salad.
