    I made this last night but used zucchini noodles! Super simple, fast and delish 🙂

    Add a crushed garlic clove for a bit stronger flavour and the entire thing will turn into perfection.

    I added a tomato and a carrot to this salad. I used a knife to slice them. I used brown sugar instead of white and only half one tbsp. Salad came out great. Did not toast the sesame seeds.

    Most versions of this recipe I’ve used include a few drops of sesame oil. Makes a huge difference in flavor.
