Carrot Greens with Sesame Dressing
1 bunch carrot greens, washed and stemmed
3 tablespoons toasted and ground white sesame seeds
1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sake
1/8 teaspoon sugar
1. In a large pot of lightly salted boiling water, parboil carrot greens for 2 minutes then shock in ice water drain and squeeze dry. Place in a new bowl of cold water and refrigerate overnight, changing water 2-3 times to eliminate bitter flavor. Drain and squeeze again, then cut into 1/2 inch lengths.
2. In a medium bowl, dress carrot greens with sesame seeds, soy sauce, sake, and sugar. Allow greens to sit and marinate at least 1 hour before serving.
