4 tomatoes, de-seeded and sliced
1 tablespoon turmeric
1 tablespoon garlic oil
1 small onion, sliced very thin and rinsed in cold water
1 tablespoon 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 chilies 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.
