A salad with an unusual flavour, Sesame Seed Salad is particularly good served as a side dish with cold beef or ham.
12 oz. white cabbage, coarse outer leaves removed, cleaned and finely shredded
4 oz. bean sprouts, washed and drained
4 tomatoes, quartered
2 medium-sized carrots, scraped and finely grated
1 medium-sized avocado, peeled, stoned and chopped
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
6 fl. oz. French Dressing
Place the cabbage, bean sprouts, tomatoes, carrots and avocado in a medium-sized serving bowl and set aside.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter over moderate heat. When the foam sub-sides, add the sesame seeds and cook, stirring frequently, for 3 to 5 minutes or until the seeds are golden brown. Remove the pan from the heat and transfer the seeds and cooking juices to the salad.
Pour the French dressing over the salad and toss well. Serve immediately.
