Heavy Vegetable Salad Recipe

 a bowl of heavy salad
 vegetable salad with peas and boiled eggs
Dear Diary,
When I eat heavy vegetable salads, I don't ask for any other food. They are
so balanced with all the food nutrients my body needs. A bowl of heavy vegetable salad is a complete meal for me. Especially with the addition of boiled eggs. I do not like baked beans much, the only way I enjoy them is in salads.
Some times, I add sardines in place of eggs, and they are still very delicious.Because these are heavy, I use light dressings for them and not heavy ones like mayonnaise or Heinz salad cream.
Ingredients for Nigerian Heavy Vegetable salad:
  1. carrots
  2. lettuce
  3. onions (optional)
  4. cucumber
  5. boiled eggs
  6. baked beans
  7. peas
  8. sweet corn
  9. sardines (optional)
  10. salted warm water
  11. water
  12. salad dressing OR olive oil

 A balanced meal of heavy vegetable salad

Eat healthy, Stay healthy
Enjoy!

    1. I love lettuce! You can replace it with cabbage. Remember to soak your chopped cabbage in salted warm water to get rid of the smell.

    1. The salt is to be added to the water you use in washing lettuce. There is no strict rule with salads, look at the pictures, get the ingredients and just mix anyhow you want it. you can use mayonnaise or cream, depends on what you enjoy eating.

  13. You can add cabbage but remember to soak in salted warm water first so it doesn't smell bad.

  14. I just prepared mine and I washed my tomatoes baked beans, even sprinkled salt on the salad. You never stated that the salt is for washing lettuce, even the soaking of cabbage in salted water. Please i want to appeal to you that recipes and picture is not enough explanation is very necessary please. Following your blog is enough to have the right thing done. Am so pissed right now

    1. I'm so sorry. Maybe you didn't read the comments. I stated that salt is only to be added to the warm water used in soaking your cabbage as that helps get rid of the smell. You don't add salt to salads. But then unless you added too much salt, it should still be edible.
