2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon toasted white sesame seeds
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes plus more to taste
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon avocado oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

Cook broccolini in a large pot of salted boiling water until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl of ice water. Drain and dry well. Cut broccolini in half, if desired. Place in a large bowl.
