Substitution
Sesame oil adds a wonderful, nutty flavor to this Asian-inspired salad. If you don't have any on hand, you can use vegetable oil instead.
Success Hint
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.
