I had a very tasty side dish at a restaurant recently. As the server walked towards our table, the aroma of toasted sesame oil was distinctive and the taste was full of flavor. This side dish was so good I knew we had to try replicating it for home meals. The side dish is a Sauteed Asian Broccoli Slaw and the credit and kudos for replicating this dish goes to my wife. The recipe is below.
