Vegetarian Recipe: Vegetable Salad
One of the things that I learned to love to eat is vegetable salad. Learned is the operative word as I once loathed this dish.
It was during my visit to Germany a decade ago that I learned to appreciate this dish. My good old German friends served this delectable vegetable
Like all my recipes here, I changed some ingredients. Changes in ingredients are based on availability, better nutritional value, and price.
Vegetable Salad Ingredients (Good for two people):
. 4 leaves Chinese pechay
.1 red onion
. Kalamansi Juice (from 5 pieces). Kalamansi, a native and widely cultivated in the Philippines, is a small citrus fruit.
.1/4 tsp salt
.1 tbs brown sugar
.1/2 tsp olive oil
Thoroughly wash all the vegetables. Slice all the vegetables into small pieces. In a bowl, mix the kalamansi juice, salt, sugar, olive oil, and all the vegetables. Be sure sure to mix all the wet ingredients before mixing the vegetables in. Enjoy :)
