      TY for a great recipe that cranked up my usual salad that I have for supper every night. I followed your directions w/the omission of red pepper flakes, oh and the dark sesame oil. I lovely combination of flavor blends. Thanks Sharon! Made for Adopt-A-Tag~

      The lemon Sesame greens were just so terrific. I utilized wonderful fresh spinach and there just was nothing I didn't love about this side dish. Loved the frequent garlic, the freshness of the lemon juice, the sesame seeds, the red pepper flakes. The only little addition was *caramelized onion* and fresh grated Parmesan cheese on top. Thank you, Sharon!
