Funahashi Times No.66「冬瓜(とうがん)でサラダを作ってみました」

Hello there!

The teachers at the elementary school gave me a big slice of “togan” last Monday. Togan is called “wax gourd” in Enlgish. It was my first time to see one. It looked like a giant cucumber. It was also heavy. The whole “fruit” was about 3 kg. I didn’t really know how to cook it. I just made a salad with it. First, I washed it and took out the seeds in the center using a spoon. Then, I removed the skin and sliced it into small pieces. After that, I mixed it with canned tuna and mayonnaise. My togan salad didn’t look very good, but I liked it. It was delicious.
