Asian Iceberg Salad – almost Zen

iceberg lettuce

I love iceberg lettuce because of it’s YIN property. Chinese believe that this food is “cooling” for our body. A perfect food therapy, if you had been eating too much deep fried food or bbq stuff.

This salad is inspired by Japanese food and serves 1 person. Me 🙂

Ingredient

half an iceberg lettuce duly cleaned and cut into small pieces.

half a block of toufu cut into cubes

Roasted seaweed cut into strips and used as topping

Toasted Sesame seed

Dressing

One table spoon Japanese soy sauce

One table spoon Teriyaki Sauce

One table spoon mayonaise

One teaspoon sesamee seed oil

Dash of wasbi

Preparation

Mix ingredients for the salad dressing together.

Arrange lettuce and toufu in a plate. Drizzle the dressing over the toufu and greens. Top with roasted seaweed and sprinkle sesame seed.

There you have it.

A salad that is easy to prepare and has high “cooling” property (high water content)
