For the dressing:

1/2 c toasted sesame seeds

1 garlic clove 

zest AND juice of 2 lemons

1 Tbsp local honey 

2 Tbsp white wine vinegar 

1/4 c olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

 

For the salad:

1 pound brussel sprouts, shredded (or pulsed in food processor)

1 garlic glove, minced

1 shallot, thinly sliced 

1/4 c fresh mint, chopped

2 Tbsp sesame seeds

1/3 c golden raisins


Spread 1/4 c sesame seeds into a cookie sheet.  Pop into the toaster oven, or under the broiler for 2-3 minutes to toast.  This happens quickly, so keep your eye on them!

While seeds cool, combine remaining ingredients in a blender or food processor.  Add toasted seeds once cool.

Finally, combine all salad ingredients in a large bowl.  Toss with dressing.
