1. Toast sesame seeds in a small pan over medium-low heat, stirring or shaking the pan often for about 3 minutes, or until they are just beginning to brown and are fragrant. Watch–they can burn quickly. Set aside.
2. Grate carrots. Halve and thinly slice radishes. Combine in a large bowl. Add toasted sesame seeds and cilantro.
3. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the vegetables and toss gently. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
