[Cooking with Fran] Mixed Greens with Garlic Wasabi Mayo

I love cooking and one reason why I always look forward to hosting a simple lunch or dinner party here at home is for me to be able to experiment on a couple of dishes for my family to enjoy.

Keeping up with the healthy eating trend that is currently being practiced by my clan lately, I whipped up a refreshing Japanese-inspired salad that turned out to be a hit with my dear guests.

Here's sharing with you my little masterpiece.

Mixed Greens with Garlic Wasabi Mayo Dressing

What you'll need:
Mixed Greens (different types of lettuce, arugula, etc)
Sliced cucumber
Fresh or canned Mandarin Oranges (may also be substituted with Mangoes)
Kani sticks - thawed, steamed for 1 minute and separate into strips

1 tbsp wasabi powder
2 tsp water
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp mayonnaise
