Wood Ear Mushroom Salad (凉拌黑木耳)

This is a nice crisp summer salad. The texture of the mushrooms is nice and crunchy, and the vinegar and sugar makes for a nice sweet and sour taste.

1/2 Cup dehydrated wood ear mushrooms

1/2 white onion

2 red chili peppers (diced)

3 cloves of garlic, (crushed, and diced)

1 tsp salt

2 Tbsp of sugar

1/4 Cup white or red rice wine vinegar

2 Tbsp sesame oil

1 tsp dry chicken bouillon


1.Soak the mushrooms until hydrated, then toss into boiling water for 5 minutes.

2.Strain mushrooms, and put into a mixing bowl

3.Juliane onions and thinly sliced chili, and toss into mixing bowl.

4.Add crushed diced garlic to mixing bowl.

5.Add salt,sugar,vinegar,sesame oil, and chicken bouillon and toss.

Cooks Helpful Hints:

You can also add cucumber, and colored bell peppers for color.

I think this dish has more flavor, if it is refrigerated over night.
