3. Kani Salad Recipe by Chubby Tita

Kani Salad Recipe by Chubby Tita

1 medium size cucumber
1 medium size carrot
1 ripe mango
3–4 pcs kani (imitation crab stick)
Lettuce
1/2 cup ordinary mayo or Japanese mayo
Half lemon juice or 4 pcs calamansi juice
1/2–1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Pepper to taste
Sesame seeds (optional)

  1. If you don’t have Japanese mayonnaise regular mayo will do. Adding a little bit of lemon juice and apple cider vinegar will make it better.
  2. I didn’t add salt because the kani is already salty. Also salt encourages the cucumber to leach out excess liquid, reducing the risk that you’ll end up with a watery salad.
  3. If you’re going to serve the kani salad for later, you can just prepare all the ingredients and chill it in the refrigerator. Mix it together 2 hours before the serving time.
  4. You can add corn kernels instead of ripe mango.
