Chicken Salad with Sesame Sauce

….Reminds me of a chef saying that cooking is fun when I have a sharp knife. I sharpened my knife yesterday, so it was really fun while I was slicing the salad ingredients. Enjoying the cooking process is always a pleasure, but sometimes I get a little depressed by unexpected results. I make a chicken salad and add a special sesame sauce today. I took out a lot of ingredients onto a counter for my own sesame sauce. I repeated adding and subtracting ingredients, and it was very difficult to find the taste I wanted. I used too many ingredients in it. While thinking about it, I found our taste that was not sweet. I finally made a slightly spicy dressing with sesame sauce for myself along with boiled chicken. A little bit of spiciness reduces the sweetness. It totally satisfied my craving and my husband and I ended up eating most of it. Maybe it will be a dressing just for my husband and me!!! I learned how difficult it is to make everyone’s favorite recipe.
