Wood Ear ~ Mu'er Fungus Salad


It's time to get back to some healthy food after having indulged in a variety of 'sinful' foods during the New Year.  This is a vegetarian salad, rubbery in texture with crunchy seaweed and the sweetish black vinegar did make this salad very appetising.  In fact I could just have it on its own and can never get tired of it!

  2. Totally agree with you. I wouldn't mind having this salad. Honestly, I did so much cooking during CNY but I didn't eat much of it yet still think I should go for something light for the past week.
