Step 1

Trim off spinach stems. Carefully wash the leaves, dry them, then tear any large leaves into bite-size pieces. Place in a salad bowl along with bell pepper and onion.

Peel the orange, then cut it in half from top to bottom. Slice each half into thin half circles and add to the salad.

Spread sesame seeds out on pan and toast in a 400°F toaster oven (or regular oven) for 10 minutes. Transfer to a blender and grind into a powder. Transfer to a separate bowl and mix with vinegar, orange juice concentrate, and water. Pour over salad and toss just before serving.
