Vegetable salad recipe

Since the Holiday season is fast approaching, i decided to rummage through my kitchen cabinet for leftover food items i had in store before going for my usual shopping and i came across some canned food items i could use to put together a quick salad for a quick lunch. Here's why i love salads; It's healthy, mouthwatering and easy to make. did i also mention that it goes with just about any meal i.e jollof rice, fried rice, coconut rice, and a host of others. When making mine, i combine a host of things; sweet corn, green peas, tomatoes, cabbage, lettuce,carrots, eggs and YES macaroni with a drizzle of salad dressing. Just imagine having a bowl of this tasty salad on a hot day.....can you taste it? :D. We love it really chilled, but it's also great when it's warm too.

      I've heard of that sugar stuff, and I think that's why some salads taste so sweet when I eat out

    5. i guess you can add fruits to it (the sweet fruits used for baking) that way you'll get the sweet taste.

  5. Still trying to figure out if I'm more of a vegetarian 'cause I prefer salad to anything. Thanks for this. My issue is getting that perfect cream. I wish it could taste like the ones from these fast foods..

    1. I thought I was the only one that had the problem of cream. The salads I eat at fast food and parties taste better than the ones I make at home. I have tried adding sugar to the cream and still no dice. I have tried mayonnaise of different brands and salad cream but still i'm not yet satisfied with the outcome. Any suggestion is highly appreciated. Thanks.

  11. Salads can be really tasty. All that lettuce topped with your favorite dressing and sprinkled with other toppings is enough to make your mouth water.
