Tomato Coriander Salad

HELLO!!! it's been more than a year since the last post...and it's sorta hard to pick up food blogging again..
so what has happened since...i've moved back permanently to Singapore (along with the other girls you see in the picture on the right)..and all of us have started work..
when people ask me: "do you still cook?" I always give them a very pathetic answer.."In singapore food is very cheap lah..much easier to eat out..besides where got time....? n u need to clean up the kitchen n yourself!!"
but the truth of the matter is that i miss cooking like crazy!! I find it very therapeutic..the rhythmic chopping of stuff and imagining how the flavours of the dish will combine...
and nothing beats seeing the delightful faces of people you feed..
in the last 14 months, i think i have only ventured in the kitchen..less than 10 times...
and this dish is one that i brought to a potluck..mainly cos it was very easy to assemble..

Tomato Coriander Salad
(adapted from Mark Bittman's 101 simple salads series)

Cherry Tomatoes, 500g, halved
Coriander, 1 bunch, finely chopped
light soy sauce, hmm..sorry i can't remember...start with maybe 4 tbsp first and taste after adding the sesame oil..
sesame oil, 2 tsp, this too is an estimation... :P (sorry i endevour to be more precise next time!)

Sesame seeds, 2 tbsp, light toasted (in microwave or a pan, up to u!)

1. Mix everything together and sprinkle sesame seeds.

How easy is that?!! But the sauce is quite heavenly!! I had a friend slurping it all up from the plate!!
