Avocado Bliss Salad
In Chinese Medicine sesame oil and avocado are both good for nourishing the yin in the body which can be lost by overworking or sweating a lot. The fall is a good time of year to eat yin nourishing foods to
prepare the body for the cold weather to come. The cooling effect of the cucumber in this dish perfectly balances the spiciness of the Togarashi and the healthy fats in the avocado will stabilize the blood sugar and leave you feeling satiated. This dish is inpired by Yakuza, one of my favorite Portland restaurants!

Avocado Bliss Salad:
1 firm but ripe Avocado
1 Cucumber
Both chopped into bite-sized pieces

2 tbls Rice vinegar
1tsp of Sugar
1/4 tsp of Salt
2 tbls Sesame oil
1-2 tsp Togarashi  (found at your local asian grocery)
2 tsp Sesame seeds

Combine ingredients for sauce to taste then drizzle over avocado & cucumber and toss lightly. Goes great with a little white wine, this is a little taste of Portland a nice Pinot Gris from Ponzi. 

Enjoy!  ;)
