This recipe will double up well. When sesame seeds are toasted they impart a bacon-like flavour to food. A lovely salad for vegetarians and meat eaters alike.

You will need

1 punnet of baby spinach leaves, well washed and spun dry
¼ cup (60 ml) of sesame seeds

Ina's Tip

* Pre-prepare up to this point.

Method

Place the spinach leaves in a sinkful of cold water and leave to soak. Toast the sesame seeds by shaking them in a dry heavy based or nonstick fry-pan over medium high heat.*

Spin the leaves dry and toss them with the Dressing to coat. Dish into a salad bowl. Crumble blue cheese over and scatter with sesame seeds and violets. Serve.
