Roasted Sunchoke Sesame Salad

Another salad!  The dressing is basically my Thai peanut sauce dressing but I didn’t have peanut or almond butter.  Instead, I used tahini!  It’s really good and adds a new element to the salad.  An awesome addition would be mandarin oranges!  Let me know what y’all think!
