Ingredients
  • 1 pound spinach
  • DRESSING:
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons dashi (recipe above)
Directions

In a large pot of boiling salted water blanch spinach for 1 to 2 minutes and refresh. Squeeze water out firmly but do not wring. Lightly toss spinach to separate stems and leaves, and place in a bowl.

In a hot dry skillet, toast sesame seeds until they begin to pop. Reserve a teaspoon of toasted seeds for garnish. Transfer the rest of the seeds to a spice grinder or mortar and pestle. Grind until smooth. Pour into a bowl, if necessary, and add sugar, soy sauce and dashi. Mix well and pour over spinach. Toss to coat. Garnish with reserved seeds.
