Side Salad Trip

I blogged some time ago about salad offerings of 2 fastfood shops. Amie and Jgotangco gave useful tips on where to get the "raw materials" to make your own. So I decided to check out sections in Landmark at Makati which I do not usually frequent.

Lo and behold. Landmark has changed the layout of the grocery section, so I stared at the new map for quite a while before squeezing my way into the toiletries and food section with my wife's list in mind. My buddy and I finally got to the greens section. Oooh! Lots of choices, at only 19.00 each! And there were the largest onions I have ever seen! I guess these are the ones used for onion rings? Plus brightly-colored bell peppers and plump tomatoes abound!

There were also ready-made salad with dressing in plastic packaging at 50+ each. A middle-aged couple were looking at these and they remarked to each other it's still best to make the salad yourself. Which stopped us in our tracks because we were about to dump some into our cart.

I'll go back this weekend and make salad for lunch next week!


  1. I've been doing the salads thing for months now in an effort to eat healthy. Just went on hiatus because I've been sick. hehe.

    Just in case you feel too lazy, there's a food delivery for just salads during weekdays. I'll forward the email to you. They tell me though, that the salads are a little pricey.

    We should trade salad secrets when you get your veggie trip going. :)

  2. The fresh salad season is nearly upon us here in America. The gardens have been planted. We have peas, lettuce, onions, leeks, radishes, etc. all starting to poke out of the ground. The tomatoes were doing fine but three of the four got frost bitten last week during an unusualy cold snap and will have to be replanted. The pepper plants that I put in just for your pickled pepper recipe are doing just fine and are six inches tall. Just another couple months!

  3. uh was that my name? amie-> blushes. hey glad to help. because you featured me here i'm going to share to you another tasty salad recipe. you're gonna love it. 'though let me try it for myself first...to make sure it's not palpak. :p
