Instructions
  1. Dry blend the sesame seeds in the small jar attachment that comes with most blenders. You'll likely have to tap it a few times during the process. The blending time is a judgement call.
  2. Tear up a bunch of mint leaves and include a few stems and add some olive oil to the blender jar. Blend again. Keep adding olive oil until you get the consistency that you desire.
  3. Add a bit of sea salt and stir. Done.
  4. Spread some of this on a thick slice of tomato and garnish with a cube or sliver of bell pepper. Yellow Bell peppers work nicely with this. Green olives on the side.
Recipe Notes
17 Baht for 100 grams of white sesame seeds, 10 Baht for a respectable size bag of mint, this is more than reasonable.

This would go nicely on a cracker with a slice of tomato and a slice of cheese
. This would also go nicely on pasta too... especially cold pasta.
