Salads are very healthy foods. A salad can incorporate a lot of items such as meats, fruits, and vegetables. This recipe, however, will focus on vegetables.

Ingredients

Medium size cabbage

4 medium-sized carrots

Lettuce leaves

One can of peas

3 cooked eggs

One can of baked beans

2 big size of cucumber

One onion bulb

Green pepper (optional)

Corned beef (optional)

Salad dressing (Heinz Salad Cream, BAMA mayonnaise)

Just know that most vegetable salads are usually 50% cabbage, 30% carrot/green beans, 5-10% cucumber while the lettuce leaves, peas, eggs and cream make up the other 10%

 

Preparation

Grate the carrot, and dice the cucumber.

Chop the cabbage on a  tray

Slice the lettuce leaves.

Boil the eggs and slice or chop, whichever you prefer.

Slice the onions.

Blanch the onions in boiling water; do the same for the cabbage.

Now, you are ready for the mixing part.

Most people choose to mix salad in a large plate/bowl or a tray.

The mixing is simple: sprinkle a handful of cabbage on the tray, and then sprinkle the carrot, green pepper, peas, lettuce, and onions.

Occasionally layer it with the sliced eggs and the baked beans.

Keep repeating the process until you are done.

If you are not serving immediately, refrigerate and leave the dressing off till you are ready to serve.

Vegetable salad can be served with rice meals, or with fried meats. It is also very delicious when served alone.
