This dish was created in 1964 by 4 well-known chinese chefs in Singapore. Laid out in a large platter are grated white radish, carrots & cucumber, preserved strips of melon, pickled ginger, pomelo pulp, candied tangerine peel, crushed peanuts, sesame seeds, pickled shallots. Topped with slices of smoked or fresh salmon. (some people have it with raw thin slices of fish) A squeeze of lime, 5 spice powder, pepper, plum sauce, vegetable oil & crunchy golden crackers. This one pictured had cubes of peaches & lychee in it. Then family members take a pair of chopsticks each & toss the salad in the platter as high as they can. The higher the toss, the better as that signifies wealth & prosperity & if the salad spills outside the platter is akin to an overflowing abundance of good fortune. While tossing family members rattle off auspicious phrases
