  • 100 grams mixed greens

poppy seed dressing


Mix together the sesame seeds, poppy seeds, sugar, olive oil, vinegar, paprika, mustard, soy sauce and onion. Cover, and chill for one hour.


The cherry tomatoes are a new variety, they are yellow and considered to be “extra sweet”. We enjoyed them, and will be saving sow seed to try to grow our own.
