Potato,egg & fruit salad (Cantonese Style)

cantonese fruit salad 05

If you are planning to do a quick and simple salad dish, then you will not go wrong with this one. This type of salad was a salad dish that I was bought up with. It may sounds funny to have potato, egg and fruit with mayonnaise, but trust me, you will love it! Just like the other salad noodle that I’ve made earlier, this one is also easy to make! It has this sour but sweet taste, along with some crunchiness to the whole dish.

It is good nutrient and definitely Summer season’s favourites! I love making a big bowl of this salad, tuck it into the fridge and have a bowl whenever I feel like. At least, this is a better substitution than junkies ๐Ÿ™‚ And the best thing about this salad, you can pretty much pick any fruits that you want/ or can be found in supermarket or fruit stores – but keep in mind to have a mixture of different texture ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. May I know what is the 1 teaspoon of raw sugar for? For the mayo dressing?

  3. I don’t think I have ever had this. We used to do a fruit salad with miracle whip in HK. When I told all my American friends about that, they think I am weird and crazy!

    • Lokness,

      It actually surprised me that you didn’t had this when you were young. It was like a common “party dish” in my family/relatives/close friends ๐Ÿ™‚ But nevermind, give it a try and let me know what you think!

      I hope you’ll enjoy it!
