1. All Seasons Shabu Shabu Beef Salad
Bring kombu dashi to the simmer and lightly blanch thin wagyu slices. Drain well and cool in fridge. Wash and slice salad greens and radicchio (break up into small pieces). Slice gherkins and wash cherry tomatoes (different colours would be nice). Wash blueberries. Wash witlof and arrange cooled beef slices inside witlof; arrange all the other salad ingredients artfully. Pour on Kei’s Kitchen Sesame Dressing. Garnish with edible flowers.
2. Seaweed and Fresh Watercress Salad
Mix up a variety of seaweeds (the curly, wakame, finely chopped cooked kombu etc) and some watercress. Pour on Kei’s Kitchen Sesame Dressing and garnish with toasted sesame seeds.
3. Spinach and Boiled Egg Snack
Hard boil an egg; parboil or saute spinach. Pour on Kei’s Kitchen Sesame Dressing. Toast a piece of Turkish Bread or bread of your choice and top with spinach and egg in Sesame Dressing. Yummy healthy snack for everyone.
4. Wagyu Beef Entree
Slice wagyu beef into 7mm thin slices and barbecue (very quickly) or parboil like shabu shabu. Arrange on a bed of greens and pour on Kei’s Kitchen Sesame Dressing.
5. Kid’s Chicken and Soba Salad
Boil, drain and cool soba noodles and add a little vegetable oil. Season chicken breast with salt and pepper and a little sake and steam or cook in microwave. Cool, then shred with your fingers. Arrange on top of the soba, add some veges (whatever the kids will tolerate) and dress with Kei’s Kitchen Sesame Dressing.
6. Fried Green Bean Salad with Sesame Dressing
Trim ends of green beans. If pretty clean, don’t wash, but if you do wash, make sure to dry thoroughly. Heat some oil in frying pan when hot, add beans and fry. Drain and while still warm, dress with Kei’s Kitchen Sesame Dressing. The soft texture of the green beans is delightful. Nice as an entree.
7. Fresh Asparagus Entree
Trim and blanch green asparagus. Fan to cool or refresh in cold running water and pat dry. Slice into bite sized pieces and cover with Kei’s Kitchen Sesame Dressing.
Kei’s Kitchen Sesame Dressing keeps for over one year in the fridge.
