|Noodle Salad with Cilantro Dressing|
|Taster's Bowl (bottom right) garnished with |
fried onions & garlic, roasted sesame seeds,
crushed cashews and a squeeze of lime
The cilantro dressing is reminiscent of pesto which is usually made with basil and pine nuts. This dressing uses cilantro and cashew nuts, along with other Burmese ingredients. The salad can be eaten at room temperature, cold or microwaved for 30 seconds, just enough to take the chill off. I added fish tofu (similar to fish cake) to add some protein to the dish.
