Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Spread the almonds and sesame seeds onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the almonds are just turning golden brown, about 8 minutes. Set aside to cool completely. Meanwhile, place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate, cool, and crumble.
  4. Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate and allow to cool; crumble.
  5. Make the dressing by shaking the sugar, vinegar, monosodium glutamate, vegetable oil, and garlic in a glass jar with a sealable lid until mixed. Combine the cooled almonds, sesame seeds, crumbled bacon, lettuce, and chow mein noodles in a bowl. Pour the dressing overtop and gently toss until coated.

We loved this. I used 1/2 tsp. chicken bouillon powder in place of Accent -- the Knorr brand contains MSG and seemed a suitable substitute. I added sesame oil (to taste) to the dressing to augment the rich sesame flavor of the toasted seeds. Thanks for the recipe, I'll use this dressing again, as it's mild and made from things I always have around!

This was the best! Served it for a crowd of 40 and they loved it. Same type of salad as the coleslaw and Ichi Ban but this had more of a kick. Two heads of lettuce is not too muck either. Enjoy!
