Sesame ginger chicken salad

Ingredients for the sesame ginger dressing:
1 large ginger root, 3 tablespoons sesame oil (dark), 1/3 cup white vinegar, 2/3 cup corn syrup.

Salad: Your favorite salad mix, preferably made of iceberg lettuce, endive, radiccio, red leaf lettuce, little bit of spring mix and so on.

Fresh Fruits: strawberries, orange sections, sliced pear and apple, blueberries and any other fruit you might want to use. You will, also, need toasted sesame seeds to sprinkle on top of the salad.

Recipe: Grate finely the ginger root and squeeze it. Collect the ginger juice and put it in a small pan. Add the sesame oil, white vinegar and corn syrup to the same pan and bring to a boil. You need to reduce the dressing to the desired thickness. Boil over medium heat for about 5 minutes, then remove the dressing from heat. Let it cool down and then transfer it into a squeeze bottle. Let the dressing get cold in the fridge before using it. Toss the salad mix and the fruits with the sesame-ginger dressing and sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds on top of the salad. Add sliced grilled chicken breast if desired.
