Yusheng Salad

Yusheng is a classic dish served every Chinese New Year in Singapore.  The simple and raw ingredients symbolize vitality and renew, and the Cantonese word for fish is homophone for prosperity.  Part of a joyous even, everyone calls out “Lo hei!” while using their ingredients to toss the ingredients high into the air.   Lo hei is another clever homophone, meaning ‘mix it up” it sounds just like the Cantonese words for  “prosper and more”.  Feel free to expand or add in your favorite ingredients and toss it up!
