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 🙂


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

half a block of tofu cut into cubes

Roasted seaweed cut into strips and used as topping

Toasted Sesame seed


One table spoon Japanese soy sauce

One table spoon Teriyaki Sauce

One table spoon mayonaise

One teaspoon sesamee seed oil

Dash of wasbi


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)



My Buddhist name is Ratna Jamyang Puntsog. I first encountered Buddhism in this life when I was 12. Formally took ceremonial refuge in the triple gem when I was 19. I believe the different spiritual methods were taught by Buddha to suit various beings who each have their own unique characteristic. The various sects and practices that arose are just a naming convention invented by disciples out of communication necessity. Had read and studied different forms of Buddhism. Volunteered in Buddhist organization. Until it last, I hope to share my views on Buddhism and find like minded practitioners around the world. May we practice Buddha's instruction together and connect through cyber space!
