Spinach Salad with Tangerines, Red Onions and Sesame-Ginger Vinaigrette

From Green's restaurant cookbook.

Cut off the stem end of the frisee and discard the tough outer leaves, using the pale green inner leaves. Wash the greens and dry them in a spinner; wrap loosely in a damp towel and refrigerate.

Toss the onion with a splash of rice wine vinegar to draw out its pink color. Peel and section the tangerines, removing any seeds, pith, or threads. Make the vinaigrette. Combine the greens, tangerines, and onion in a large bowl. Toss with the vinaigrette and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.

Sesame-Ginger vinaigrette:

Combine everything but the zest in a blender; blend, then whisk in the zest. [Oh heck blend the zest too. --mrm, Ed.]
