Chicken Salad


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 :(

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕

It's normal to find buns coated with meat floss in any bakery, but yet to find a meat floss coated piece of cake.  I saw this Chicken Floss Cake on youtube and was eager to give this a shot.  The recipe is quite similar to a chiffon cake and I was curious to find out the taste which should be slightly sweetish and saltish.  Wouldn't it be weird, I wonder.  But it turned out that the taste is rather unique with a light and soft texture and my family members gave me a thumbs up and asked for more!

Lavender lemon cookies ~ 薰衣草柠檬曲奇

These dainty looking Lavender lemon cookies have a subtle taste of lavender, not too much for I used  fresh leaves instead of dried flowers.  They are buttery, taste like shortbread with a light floral aroma.  They are simple, cute and sure to impress.  Try gifting them at a Christmas cookie swap or great to give as a gift during the coming festive season.
