Arugula and Radicchio Salad with Sesame-Scallion Vinaigrette
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 head radicchio
1 bunch arugula
In a small skillet heat 1 tablespoon oil over moderate heat until hot but not smoking and cook sesame seeds, stirring, until pale golden, about 1 minute. Mince scallion and in a small bowl whisk together with sesame seeds, remaining tablespoon oil, vinegar, mustard, and salt and pepper to taste until emulsified. Tear radicchio into bite-size pieces and in a bowl toss together with arugula and vinaigrette.
from a reviewer: This is a fabulous recipe. The dressing is unusual and memorable. I've been serving it for years and ALWAYS receive raves from guests. It doubles easily.
