I was served this side salad at a few restaurants and loved its nutty flavor and utter simplicity. The key is roasted ground sesame seeds: Look for roasted ground sesame seeds at ­Korean markets. They're not ground to a powder but crushed a bit. You can make your own by toasting sesame seeds until deeply golden, allowing them to cool, and crushing with a mortar and pestle.

How to Make It

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add lettuce and onion; toss to coat. Serve immediately.
