Whirling Dirvish

Stewart didn’t really like salads. I decided that was because a lot of salads are boring. Who likes boring? I decided I’d make a salad no Stewart could resist. The Whirling Dervish was born one afternoon while I was watching a documentary on PBS. (It was about Whirling Dervishes. Could you guess?)

Romain Lettuce
Toasted Almonds
Baked Tofu
Creamy Maple Sesame Dressing

Here’s my salad dressing recipe, good for any salad, be they dervishes or not:

In a small bowl, whisk:

1 1/2 Tbs Nayonaise
1 3/4 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
2 tsp Toasted Sesame Oil
1 1/5 tsp Dijon Mustard
1 1/2 Tbs Maple Syrup
1/4 tsp Salt
Fresh Pepper

Taste and adjust if needed. Slowly drizzle 1/4 (or so) of canola or other mild oil into the bowl while whisking vigorously to emulsify. Oil should blend completely into the dressing and it should thicken.

That’s it!
