The hot and dry weather season does affect my mood for cooking and baking. What more with my hubby away from home, it is good time for me to prepare simple and easy dishes like salads and soups or even One Dish Meals.
This salad is rather easy to prepare. I can use any combination of vegetables that can be eaten raw or suitable for salads and serve it with the blanched meat slices with a dressing. 
Here, I used a sesame flavour salad dressing and it turns out well. 
It is aromatic, savoury and sweet. Chilli oil can be added to increase the spiciness.
1 small zucchini – washed and shredded
1 yellow onion – peeled and finely sliced
1/2 red carrot - peeled and shredded
1 tomato - cut thin strips
1 red chilli – seeded and chopped
1 stalk coriander – chopped
Some toasted sesame seeds
150 – 200 gm streaky pork belly – cut in 2 inch lengths
Dressing [combined]
2 tbsp sesame paste
1 tbsp each oyster sauce, light soy sauce and sesame seed oil to taste
1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp cold water

  1. Soaked shredded ingredients in boiled cold water for a few minutes, drain in colander.  Place them on serving platter.
  2. Combine dressing ingredients, taste to adjust.
  3. Bring a pot of water to boil, blanch meat slices until cooked through [when the water turns clear, the meat is cooked].   Dish up and place over vegetables.
  4. Drizzle over the dressing. Sprinkle toasted sesame seeds.
  5. Serve immediately.

Kimmy, your salad is making me hungry! The dressing looks simple to make. I must look for sesame paste.

Hi Phong Hong, good a change. This thick dressing is able to coat the ingredients and make it tasty.

Hi Veronica, is a good variation from the usual sweet dressing for Chinese style salads.
