Susan Lin from Avondale loves creating new dishes. Her friends often ask her for new recipe ideas. During lockdown she was inspired to simplify and add more healthy ingredients to some of her dishes so that other families can enjoy it too. This salad is really refreshing with a bit of a bite and will be the perfect accompaniment to a chicken or pork dish.
