*Cook’s Note:
- White sesame seeds are normally used in the recipe, I prefer using a mix of white and black.
- Optional salad leaves: romaine or red leaf lettuce mix.
- Green leaf lettuce wilt easily after it is mixed with the seasoning, so mix the salad just before serving.
- Adjust the seasoning in accordance to your preference.
