Rice salad for a panda

White and black like a panda. It’s a Chinese style “salad” plus rice.

Shiny details. The goya (bitter squash) is salted and rinsed. The other veggies cooked and “pickled” in rice vinegar : bell peppers and lotus root.

Usually, it’s only the vinegared renkon (lotus root). But I had black rice. So it’s like sushi.

The other dish will be in another post. Soon !

It’s a refreshing and colorful side dish.
