Bea's notes for this recipe:
Great little salad without frogs! It's a very cool and refreshing dish that my sister introduced to me last year. She usually sends some over whenever she makes it. I don't make it often because my husband doesn't particularly care for it and I can't eat but so much! So there you go.

I am a collector of frogs; I have a great collection of decorative frogs and live frogs in with my Water Dragon. Naturally, I am intrigued and drawn in by the name of this salad. I will have to try this sometime soon.

Bea, must be we come from the old world school of recipes. I have this one packed away too. I'll have to make some up. Thanks for the reminder.
