Very good but made a few modifications to what I had. No chives and used tahini oil instead of sesame oil

REALLY delicious! Found it because My basil, chives and oregano are going strong and I had arugula in the fridge. I followed the dressing recipe exactly except like Jeff no sesame seed oil so I added an extra Tbs of sesame seeds (extra good luck!) All I had for the salad was romaine lettuce, arugula, all the herbs, currents and 4 small carrots (carrots grated in the Vitamix!) I have to stop writting to take big bite fulls. Can't wait to try the awsome dressing with all the salad veggies. If I knew how to rate online it would be 5 stars!!!!! Thank you Dr. Fuhrman.
