Tomato and Cucumber Salad

Tomatoes are looking great at the farmers market, and this salad has an Asian flair to it. The Persian cucumbers I saw recently at Trader Joe's would also work well, sliced and tossed with the dressing
Tomato Cucumber Salad

4 medium tomatoes, sliced
1 English cucumber, sliced
1 Tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted

Sweet Soy Dressing
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 Tablespoon sweet soy sauce

2 Tablespoons rice bran oil

In a bowl combine the garlic, vinegar, soy, mustard and wasabi.
Whisk in the sesame and rice bran oil until well emulsified. Add salt and pepper.
Lay tomatoes and cucumbers on serving platter and drizzle dressing over top.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
