Lunar New Year Yee Sung

~ a delightful salad of julienne Daikon radish, carrots, cucumber, pomelo, green mango, fresh salmon strips and crunchy wonton skin

 A must-have for any Lunar New Year get-together with family and friends. It is customary for everyone at the table, armed with chopsticks, to participate in the "tossing ritual" known as Low Sung, meaning lively stir,  where all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed prior to being served.

Low in Chinese  means to mix or stir, but it can also mean business or personal venture. It is believed that the higher the salad is tossed, the more prosperity this new year will bring.
