"Yusheng is eaten at Lunar New Year with a great deal of fanfare," says Antony Suvalko of The Real Food of China. "The ingredients are mixed one by one, to the uttering of auspicious wishes by the server. When all the ingredients are served, diners use their chopsticks to toss everything enthusiastically in the air — the higher they toss, the greater their coming fortune in the new year."

Take a peek at the construction of this vibrant, crunchy salad, served with a sweet-and-sour plum sauce.
