Whipped up this simple salad for dinner recently, something light and refreshing after having a heavy lunch.  I  enjoyed it tremendously and look forward to concocting  more of  such one-dish meal in future.










Isn't it colourful?  Every mouthful of these crunchy vege with some protein is just wholesome, healthy and nutritious, more so if you're on a diet!

  16. Hi Cheah,

    You just reminded me of one of the most delicious salad!! This is my favourite summer salad because it is so light and tasty. I add julienne celery, sesame oil, chilli oil and crunchy jelly fish and loads of roasted sesame seed and fresh coriander leaves to the one I make. Oh, I can taste summer though we heading into winter here in Sydney :(

Biscoff Butter Cake ~ 牛油蛋糕

The recipe for this Biscoff Butter Cake is similar to my earlier post of Marble Butter Cake, just that I added an extra ingredient which is, crushed Biscoff cookies.    Instead of mixing the crushed cookies into the batter, I just sprinkled them on top of the first layer of batter and then cover with the remaining batter.   This cake is soft and moist with good texture ..... definitely a recipe for keeps!
