Kani Avocado Salad with Wafu Dressing – Delishar

After I started working, I have LIMITED time to make a decent meal. Anything quick, easy, edible, and healthy will be passable. I’m left with so little energy on the weekends, but depriving myself time in the kitchen is simply depressing. Any little time I spend in the kitchen is pure joy, an ecstasy actually, something to keep me sane. Last week, I made this quick salad with one of my favourite dressing. I always kind of feel a little cheated when I walk into a Japanese restaurant and order myself a plate of Kani Avocado Salad. The bill comes… and ka-ching ka-ching… EXPENSIVE! Now i’m glad, I can make it anytime I want at a fraction of the price. 🙂
