Good and easy way to serve brocolli and green beans. This was very good with 4 ingredient Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wings 4 Ingredient Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wings. Thanks Kree for posting.
I used just the sesame ginger vinagirette part of this recipe, but it was easy to make and worked great in my recipe. I made a tilapia salad, and this dressing suited it perfectly. I don't always like ginger, but this dressing was nicely flavored and a good consistency. I will use it again when I need a sesame ginger dressing.
This was very easy and the broccoli looked awesome. Unfortunately, the green beans (frozen) were very overcooked and looked and tasted like it. We could only detect a hint of the dressing but is likely due to the amount of vegetables. I would probably add some toasted sesame seeds also.
