Foodie Fridays: Chinese New Year Salad – Yusheng

I got to eat amazing Yusheng this year.  For those of you who haven’t tried it- you are seriously missing out on life itself.  It’s got the crunch, the flavour and meaning behind it.  It’s amazing.

Each ingredient in the salad signifies a different meaning that provides luck for the New Year.  Chinese believe that the higher you toss the salad while mixing it – the more luck you get!  Just imagine, you’re given the green light to make a mess in a sophisticated restaurant.  It’s a child’s dream.  Oh – wait – it was really fun for me too.  Just wonder what does says about me 😉

I took a picture of it before eating it.  It was terribly tough to do that – as I couldn’t wait to dig in.  So happy that I was in Singapore during that period 🙂



I really want to try to make it at home.  I did some googling – came across this recipe which I’m thinking of modifying a bit to suit me more.  Will post my version up when I try it out.  I think I might need to make a trip to the Chinese Supermarket for some ingredients though!

Hope everyone’s been quite the foodie lately!
