Sesame Dressing

from "Christmas Culinary Charm"
Chef Elizabeth Terry, of
Elizabeth on 37th, Savannah GA

Christmas with Southern Living 1995
Edited by Rebecca Brennan, Lelia Gray Neil, and Julie Fisher
Copyright © 1995 by Oxmoor House, Inc.


Serves 8

"Cutting fresh herbs into julienne strips releases their
distinctive flavors. Consider serving this refreshing salad
course after the entrée."

1/3 cup sesame oil
2 tablespoons minced shallots
2 tablespoons orange marmalade
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 large bunch watercress
4 navel oranges, peeled and chopped
2 ripe pears, peeled, cored, and chopped
1/2 cup minced green onions
1/4 cup julienne-sliced fresh basil
1/4 cup julienne-sliced fresh mint

 Combine first 7 ingredients in a small bowl; stir with a wire whisk.
Let dressing stand at room temperature 30 minutes for flavors to blend.
Remove and discard large stems from watercress. Combine watercress
and remaining ingredients; toss gently. Drizzle dressing over salad.
Serve immediately. Yield 8 servings.
