Method

Preheat an oven to 500 degrees.
Lightly scrub, but do not peel, 6 sunchokes. Slice into 1 inch sections and toss lightly with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and put in the oven. Cook for 12-15 minutes, ensuring they do not burn. Allow to cool.
 
Prepare the seed mixture:
Mix 1 teaspoon each of:
white sesame seeds
black sesame seeds 
flax seeds
poppy seeds
 
Prepare the green goddess dressing:
 
Place all of the ingredients in a blender, and blend at high speed until the dressing has a smooth texture and the herbs have been broken down.
 
Prepare the sherry vinaigrette:
Whisk all ingredients together until the mixture emulsifies.
 
Assemble the salad:
Using a rubber spatula, coat one side of two individual salad bowls with the green goddess dressing. Sprinkle the seed mixture on the dressing so that it adheres. Toss appoximately 4 cups of fresh greens with the sherry vinaigrette, add the sunchokes and divide between the two salad bowls. Garnish with a pinch each of dill, chervil and chive batons.
