toast the sesame seeds over low heat. or in an oven set to a low temperature. if in a skillet, toss the seeds about occasionally. ensure heat is evenly distributed amongst them. toast until they are golden. or light brown.

combine salt, oil and toasted seeds in a blender. blend until silky smooth.
