Fruit and Vegetable Salad

 
After tucking in all the yummy food and goodies during the Chinese New Year, it's time to have something simple but refreshing for a change.  There is no recipe for this fruit and vegetable salad, you can just use whatever fruits and veggie you have or fancy.


I've here in my salad bowl, cherry tomatoes, red cabbage, cucumber, some toasted cashew nuts, hard boiled egg and homemade Thousand Island dressing.  For ease of reference here's the recipe for the Thousand Island dressing.

  5. Hi Cheah, eventhough I didn't eat much meaty food during the CNY, I still crave for light refreshing vegetable dishes. This salad should fulfil my 'needs' moreover with homemade sauce. BTW can I substitute olive oil with corn oil?
