Burmese Tomato Salad
submitted by renee
from Neversink, NY
4-5 tomatoes, de-seeded and sliced
1 Tbsp turmeric and garlic oil
1 small onion, sliced very thin and rinsed in cold water
1 Tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
1/2 cup cabbage, shredded very finely
1 lime juice
1/2 cup peanuts, chopped
1 bunch coriander (cilantro) roughly chopped
salt or fish sauce to taste
Prepare all the ingredients and toss them together with your clean hands
at the last moment possible before serving. Fresh green chilis can also
be added for those who love spiciness. This salad makes a nice base for
many other salads. I have successfully added avocados, chicken, blanched
broccoli and green beans. More or less cabbage can be added depending on
your needs. A very nutritious salad with the sesame seeds and peanuts
providing extra protein and fat. Absolutely delicious. Green tomatoes can
be substituted for ripe ones for a Shan-style salad.
