Recipe by KPD
This is such a fun and lively side dish! I made this up one day with ingredients that I had on hand. I have made it as an Asian side dish, an Indian side dish, and even as a Mexican side dish. It really works any way! If you don't have sesame or chili oil, any oil will do, just cut it down to only 2 tablespoons. I just really LOOOOOVE sesame oil! Enjoy!
