Here’s another great summer dish from my Nai Nai’s kitchen. This dish is cool and refreshing, and is perfect for those hot days when you don’t want to warm up the house with cooking heat. “Liang” means cool and “ban” means toss, and that describes this dish perfectly because the preparation is all cutting and assembling—easy and simple. This recipe uses a couple ingredients only found in Chinese super markets. Zha cai are pickled vegetables that add a great crunch to the dish. Century eggs are preserved duck eggs that look really funky, but taste great. This dish is a wonderful combination of flavors and textures and is also extremely healthy. The tofu and duck eggs make this dish almost entirely protein and will keep you going during the summer. Enjoy!
