This is super easy, very tasty and travels well so it's great for picnics, lunch bags, whatever. It tastes wonderful at room temperature. From the Chicago Tribune, originally attributed to Ron Bilaro, a personal chef in Chicago. The original recipe called for 2 T. of the sesame oil but I knocked that down to 1 T. as we feel a little goes a long way with sesame oil. Add more if you wish.
