The 2-Ingredient 'Lap Cheong' Salad

Have you ever googled for a 2-Ingredient salad? I did. The results were not quite what I had in mind. Tomatoes and onions? Several other recipes included dressing that required a further 3 ingredients at least!

Well, that's not happening here. This really is a 2-ingredient salad. I'm going with lap cheong, a dried Chinese Sausage that is sweet, savoury and packs a punch in any meal.

Wikipedia describes it as:
"Lap cheong is a dried, hard sausage usually made from pork and a high content of fat. It is normally smoked, sweetened, and seasoned with rose water, rice wine and soy sauce."

Lap Cheong Salad

The 2-Ingredient 'Lap Cheong' Salad
For this recipe, you'll need:
- Lap cheong / Chinese Sausage (sliced)
- Chilled fresh flat-leaf parsley (roughly chopped)


1) Heat a non-stick pan up without oil. Dry pan-fry the lap cheong pieces. Do this on medium-low heat as it gets burnt easily. Remove the lap cheong from the pan the moment it's slightly charred. 

Note: You can use the oil that has oozed out from the lap cheong during pan-frying to do a quick vegetable stir-fry. I do this immediately after removing the lap cheong.

2) Mix and toss with flat-leaf parsley.

Enjoy as a side dish with rice or congee.

Alternatively, you could use fresh coriander but I find this parsley to be a better contrast of flavour and it stays crunchy for a longer period.

  1. Something new to me, i have not tried chinese sausage in salad before...

    1. Weird combination but it is my favourite way of eating this, Sharon ;)

  2. Haven't had Chinese sausages in aaaaaaaaaaaaages...this salad looks hearty and delicious.

    1. Thanks, Angie. We can't live without it!

  3. Hi Sharon,
    I love lap cheong with fried rice or simply add a few drops of black sauce to it with plain steamed rice. Never thought of making it as salad. You are so creative :)

  4. You are creating a new recipe! I dont think I ever seen this salad. Not a big fan of lap cheong even in fried rice. Not sure I would be enjoying this or not. Haha.

  5. Thank you for giving me more ideas with Lap Cheong! It never occurred to me they could go well with salad.
