After prepping all the ingredients, this was how I mixed the salad together.  This pictorial recipe was done around 10 pm, the night before chef’s Grace two-years-old birthday party.  She stayed up insisting to help cut the rice papers with her dad.  I gave her a pair of toddler’s scissors as her birthday gift.  She was so happy to have her own first pair of scissors.
