Another recipe found in my magazine. This seems like something you can prep before work and put together in a flash.

This is very good! I was a little worried about the dressing. Even though it's simple, it's quite tasty. I sort of expanded the ingredient list - I was very hungry when I made the salad, so I just added a bunch of things - red bell pepper, cucumbers, avocado and mini tomatoes - to what is listed here. I did take a picture, but forgot the sesame seed until afterwards, so it's not in the picture. I did add it before eating. I couldn't find baby spinach, so used a package marked "baby leaves", which seem to be a variety of leaf veggies. It's nice. Thank you very much for sharing this lovely recipe with us.
