    Japanese Apple Salad |

    Since my last post Korroke was a deep fried dish, I want to share a healthy dish today. This salad is my mom’s recipe. Well, precisely speaking, I was trying to recreate her recipe with my memory of her salad. I wish she had kept a recipe book like what I am doing now then I would have her entire home cooking recipe collection. This is exactly the reason why I’m organizing my recipes for my kids. One day when they grow up and try to cook on their own (I hope!), they at least have a reference, either with this blog or a digital copy of some sort.

    For the salad I used Myer lemon this time since my friend gave me a lot of organic Myer lemons from her backyard. It was sweet and really juicy, which added a nice final touch to the salad.
