Sweet & Sesame Salad Dressing

Make a simple salad more original with this homemade dressing. It works well with any salad mix – try a spring mix, an arugula/spinach combination or even just plain spinach. Then top with a fruit/nut combination (like apples and pine nuts, strawberries and almonds, or blueberries and walnuts), and add roasted coconut chips, a fun new ingredient available at many grocery stores that adds a great crunchy texture to any salad.
