Broccolini and sweet sesame salad
Page 94, Ottolenghi
A day that starts with lunch of my current obsession – Basta’s eggplant sandwich – and ends with broccolini and sweet sesame salad is a fine day indeed. Ottolenghi strikes again with a simple vegetable salad that explodes with flavor – I would not have thought to put broccolini in a salad, and Ottolenghi himself admits that “the use of tahini is a move no Japanese would ever dream of making” in this dressing. It is a perfect combination, though. Pure Ottolenghi.
