To prepare the dressing, blend all ingredients together in a blender till smooth. Dressing will make about 1 cup.
Mix all salad ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
Slice the tempeh into thin strips (about 1/2 inch thick). Heat the vegetable oil in a medium pan till hot, then add as many pieces of tempeh as you can. As soon as it starts sizzling, add a nice dash of tamari. Allow it to brown on one side (shouldn't take long--2 minutes or so), flip, and brown on the other side. Add more oil and tamari as needed.
Toss the salad with as much dressing as you like. I like this salad to be generously dressed, so I'd suggest 2/3 cup to start. To serve, top the salad with the seared tempeh strips and sesame seeds.
