* Pairing Toasted Sesame oil and the Lime & Ginger vinegar is a delicious combination for this salad, but you can use a plain EVOO or even a Garlic EVOO along with your favorite crisp and fruity vinegar. Both are available at most Oil & Vinegar stores. Just remember that the essence of any salad is a flavorful dressing, so use the highest quality ingredients for the vinaigrette that you can get.
