Zespri Kiwifruit, Glass Noodles and Chicken Salad


Due to some program problem while i editng my new recipe index page, an old post that was deleted but appearing in my blogger's friend blog list. Thus I have no choice, need to publish a new post to overwrite it. So i take this Zespri kiwifruit salad which i prepared during Mid-Autumn festival BBQ party and post it here..

Hi Sonia,
This sounds very good. Like the freshness of kiwi and the lightness of the mixture of veges and the glass noodles.

I love this salad! Not just leafy salad, but this has chicken and glass noodles... just plenty of ingredients to call it main dish (for me who try to lose weight). Looks refreshing and yummy!
