Mom’s Chinese Salad

Mom’s Chinese Salad

OK, before you ask, I have no idea why it is called Chinese salad. I made this recipe countless times for different occasions (birthdays, pot luck, Christmas, New Year, etc.) and I never know what to say when someone ask where the name is coming from.  The salad is not even Chinese!!

This recipe was passed on to me by my mom. I asked her about the origin of its name and she's never been able to answer. Hahahaha, oh mom! That is why I renamed it “Mom's Chinese Salad”. That way I can just say that my mom made up the name. ūüėČ
I did not change any ingredients from the original recipe; I simply adjusted the quantities a bit to balance the protein, fat and carbs better. I assure you the picture doesn't do it justice: this salad is simply amazing!

Hope you like it as much as I do. Let me know in the comment box below or by rating this recipe. You can also tag me on Instagram @vic_r.c and share your thoughts there.

Thanks and Enjoy!

Chicken Sausages & Shrimps Paella

Chicken sausages and shrimps paellaHi!
This is another one of my left overs inspired recipes. It does not require complicated ingredients, it is quick to make and you can cook a big batch for the week. It is not the traditional paella but it is very savory and healthy. I added a bit of Turmeric to it for extra health benefit (see my Turmeric and Zucchini Turkey Meatballs recipe to learn more about the benefits of using Turmeric).

Please let us know what you think in the comment box below. You can also leave suggestions and questions at the same place. If you are posting this recipe on Instagram, don't forget to tag @vic.r_c so we can see what you came up with.

Thanks and Enjoy!
