Directions

1. With a vegetable peeler, peel the fibrous outer layer from each broccoli stem and from the carrot.
2. Slice the broccoli stems and carrot paper thin. Use a mandoline-style slicer for this. (There should be about a cup of prepared broccoli stem slices or a bit more.)
3. Trim the root ends and any dried or wrinkly bits from the green onions and slice the white parts thin.
4. Place the prepared salad ingredients in a serving bowl and set aside.
5. In another bowl, put all the dressing ingredients and whisk to emulsify.
6. Pour over the salad and toss gently.
7. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
