Sesame Soy Ginger Salad

Aaaaaaaaand another summer salad! For lunch today I made the Sesame Soy Ginger Garbanzo Bean Salad I mentioned in my Things to Keep Around post. I thought I would throw together a more specific recipe while it was fresh in my head. I like the creaminess leant by the Smart Balance mayo, but I prefer the flavor of the peanut oil, so I used half and half. To sweeten, today I chose agave nectar. Also, I used a Walla Walla onion because I NEVER pass up the chance while they're in season! Still a NW girl at heart; I just happen to live Cali.

Blend ingredients together with fork. Makes 1/4 cup of dressing; just enough to top salad below.

2 handfuls Sweet 100 or other cherry tomatoes, halved

Toss salad makings together. Add dressing and toss again. Serves two as an entree, four as a side. Toss just before serving to ensure good coating.
