Fresh Tomato & Plum Kimchi with Nori Sesame Salt
Most of this savory fruit-and-tomato salad recipe can be prepared in advance-just mix the tomatoes with the dressing right before serving. For the most stunning presentation, use a mix of colorful heirloom tomatoes.
To make ahead: Store nori salt (Step 2) airtight for up to 1 week.
Tips: Look for pungent fish sauce, made from salted fermented fish, with other Asian ingredients. We use Thai Kitchen fish sauce in our nutritional analyses--it's widely available and lower in sodium than other brands.
Unhulled black sesame seeds are nuttier and more aromatic than their hulled white counterparts. Use them as a garnish, in granola or to crust meat or fish. Find them in Asian markets and specialty grocers.
