Ebiko Lotus Salad


We have been rather busy and I've been lazy too. Here's a salad which I NOW love and I promise there will be more back-dated posts to be posted soon! :) Patience hor? :)

This salad is not only so easy to put together but so yummy, I love it! You can alternately the ingredients and add/remove what you like/dislike. That's the beauty of salads ya? This salad tastes wonderful when it is very chilled!:)

Recipe (Not even a recipe just what I throw in! keke)

  • Fresh lotus root
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Blueberries
  • Ebiko (Japanes orange coloured fish roe)
  • Japanese mayonaise (prefered, else the norm also can)

Method

  1. Remove skin of lotus root and slice it thinly. Let it stand in a bowl of salt water for 5-10mins
  2. Remove and dry lightly and let it stand in fridge to dry up moisture (optional)
  3. Add in the rest of ingredients and stir in the mayo till well distributed
  4. Return to fridge to chill and chomp when ready

Tips

  • I did not have any avocado else it would have been a lovely addition to this salad. There is absolutely no fast rule to this salad, you can toss in some cubed apples, surimi, smoked salmon, pineapple, peaches or whatever that's in your fridge!
