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 :(
