Base:

½ white radish

1 cucumber

1 carrot

Condiments:

Salmon sashimi (年年有余 Nian Nian You Yu)

1 quarter red dragon fruit (鸿运当头 Hong Yun Dang Tou)

½ mango (黄金满地 Huang Jin Man Di)

1 cup pomegranate seeds (顺顺利利 Shun Shun Li Li)

¼ pomelo (吉祥如意 Ji Xiang Ru Yi)

20 strawberries (甜甜蜜蜜 Tian Tian Mi Mi)

1 sweet potato (金玉滿堂 Jin Yu Man Tang)

1 mandarin orange (大吉大利 Da Ji Da Li)

½ cup peanut crumbs or crushed almond nuts (岁岁平安 Sui Sui Ping An)

½ cup sesame seed (生意兴隆 Sheng Yi Xing Long)

½ lemon (吉祥如意 Ji Xiang Ru Yi)

Method:

Crispy cracker substitute

Slice sweet potato into thin chip-like pieces, place them into a ziplock bag, add 2 teaspoon of corn flour first then followed by ½ tablespoon of coconut oil or olive oil. Shake the bag thoroughly so that the chips are evenly mixed. Spread the coated chips on a baking tray that has been lined with baking sheet. Bake for 10-20mins at 180°C. Homemade sweet potato chips give you the same crunch but with lesser calories.

Alternatively, you can opt for whole grain cereal, no preparation required!

Yusheng sauce

We replaced plum sauce with homemade strawberry & lemon sauce instead.

Take about 10-15 strawberries, cut them into tiny pieces and place them into a heated saucer. Add about 3 tablespoon of water (or more if you need), stir until strawberries are melted. Squeeze in some lemon juice to give it a sour tinge. You may need to add pure honey if your strawberries are not sweet enough.

Preparing the dish

Shred (fine julienne) white radish, cucumber and carrot into long, thin strips similar to matchsticks.

Slice (batonnet) red dragon fruit & mango into strips.

Cut 4-5 strawberries into thin slices.

Lay all ingredients onto a huge serving plate as shown in the picture and you are all ready to LOHEI (toss up good fortune)!
