Chicken, Lychee and Orange Salad with Ginger dressings

    Lychees (canned in my younger years and fresh lychees nowadays) always reminded me of Chinese New Year...not too sure why... it could be in those days.. we lived in a 'multi cultural' kampung (village). When our neighbours celebrated Chinese New Year, they would send 'Chinese New Year goodies' ... among other items - a canned of lychees...I love lychees.
    Needless to say that I love this lovely combination of sweet lychee, with a tinge of citrus and ginger taste salad. Had this salad with our 'usual' Barbeque.... a week before we left for Albany.
  • 1 cup cooked chicken - shredded
  • 1 canned lychee - drained the syrup
  • 1 orange - segmented (with a bowl underneath to catch orange juice)
  • 1 red capsicum- julienne
  • 1 yellow capsicum - julienne
  • cos lettuce
Ginger dressing: grate 2cm ginger into the orange juice. Add some olive oil.
Mix the salad with ginger dressing. Season to taste.
