I look forward to my friend’s holiday party every year.
There are goodie bags and prizes, we play games and we chat.
And of course, I encouraged some photo taking.
In true Hilo Style, everyone who comes to this party contributes things to the awesome array of food.
My contribution this year was a Hawaiian Seafood Salad. I love my local cookbooks and found this yummy-sounding salad in the Maui Association for Family and Community Education cookbook that would be perfect for this party. To make this recipe, I have to chop and mix–just my level of cooking.
I chopped up a bell pepper, Maui onion, imitation crab, cucumber (given to me by a friend), fishcake tempura, and green onions (picked from my backyard). Toss these items with lettuce and place in a serving dish.
Mix poke and ocean vegetable salad and layer over the lettuce mixture.Finished product, ready to serve. Simple and easy. Living Hilo Style.
