Cold Soba, Beans and Chicken

20110706-191233.jpg

Cold soba topped with green beans and pan fried chicken breasts (seasoned with salt and pepper). The dressing is home made creamy kinako-sesame-almond. I used the recipe below and with a kinako-sesame almond mix I had.

This was my first time making a creamy salad dressing. I don’t usually even eat creamy salad dressings but I have a soft spot for sesame dressing.  I had always assumed it was basically mayo and sesame seeds and had never looked it up. Tonight I felt like sesame dressing but since I was out and getting a baby ready to go shopping for five minutes seems silly, I looked it up on CookpadCookpad is my go to Japanese recipe site.  I was pleased to find out that you don’t need mayo to make sesame dressing.  I skipped one ingredient because I couldn’t remember how to read the characters and was too lazy to look it up.
