25 minutes prep time | Serves 2
6 baby new potatoes, scrubbed clean
1/2 c fine green beans, trimmed and halved
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, halved
10 baby vine-ripened tomatoes, halved
2 c small spinach leaves
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
Minty Soy Dressing:
4 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp runny honey
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil
Handful of fresh mint leaves, finely shredded
1. Cut potatoes into thick slices and boil for 10 minutes. Blanch beans for 2 to 3 minutes, refresh under cold, running water, and set aside to drain well.
2. Soak onion slices (to rid them of their smell) in a bowl of cold water for 10 minutes and drain.
3. Rub garlic on surface of two serving bowls or plates. Mix together all ingredients for dressing.
4. Put all vegetables in bowl, pour in dressing, toss, and divide between serving bowls. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with chopsticks.
