This happy dish was served last New Year’s Eve. Hubby and I were so tired of all the meat we had during the holidays that we thought of somehow detoxifying. And for Ayex’s birthday celebration last January 9, I made a batch for the adults. I was so surprised that it was a hit!
What we used
- 2 packs Chinese lettuce (We brought ours from SM Hypermartket)
- 1 can of Corn kernel
- 1/4kg grapes, cut into halves
- 1 pack of soup and salad croutons
- 2 pieces mangoes, cut into cubes
How to make the salad
You basically have everything already and all you have to do is just arrange them to make them presentable. I used a square serving dish (I have this thing with serving dish). In that plate, I arranged the lettuce first, then I added the corn kernels, cubed mangoes, grapes and croutons one after the other. And voila – you have a healthy, delicious and inexpensive salad!
As for the dressing, I asked hubby to make one since he didn’t want to opt for the ready-made thousand island dressing. He used the mayonnaise, ketchup and sugar to make his own dressing. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the exact measurements he used so I take it as a trial and error.
Other ingredients you may want to add to your salad are:
- tomatoes, cut in circles
- bacon bits
- hard-boiled eggs, cut in circles
