How to Make It

Step 1    

Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add a large pinch of salt and the lemon juice. In a medium skillet, toast the sesame seeds over moderate heat, shaking the pan a few times, until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Spread the sesame seeds on a plate and let cool completely.

Step 2    

Add the asparagus and carrots to the boiling water and cook for 2 minutes. Drain and spread out on a baking sheet to cool.

Step 3    

In a mini food processor, pulse the sesame seeds until coarsely ground. Add the mayonnaise, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sugar and cayenne and process to blend. Season the dressing with salt.

Step 4    

Transfer the asparagus and carrots to a platter. Drizzle the dressing on top or mix with the vegetables and serve.
