Japanese Cold Sesame Spinach Salad Recipe
2 bunches fresh spinach OR 1 med- lg. bag baby spinach
1/3 cup white sesame seeds
2 tbsp. agave nectar(vegan) or honey (non-vegan) (or more, to taste)
1/4 scant cup GF low sodium tamari, like San-j

Wash and prepare spinach. Bring pot of water to boil and blanch your spinach, rinsing under cool water and then draining. Chop and reserve.

Take your sesame seeds and toast or heat them until they start to release their fragrance. Grind in a suribachi/mortar or in a blender, crushing the seeds until they release their oils and start to become like a nut flour, but stopping before they become a paste. Combine ground nuts with your sweetener and tamari, mix, and pour over your chopped, drained spinach. Serve.
