How To Make Salad ala Roselle at Salad Bar


I love snacking on salad. There are times when salad replaces my usual meal. While I enjoy the simplicity of Caesar salad, I am much delighted when I have to liberty to choose what to put into my salad bowl.

I visited Salad Bar this afternoon at the Food Choices in Glorietta 4 and created my own salad. I was actually torn if I want a fruit salad or a veggie salad. Since I was having the salad for brunch, I went for the greens.

How to make salad ala Roselle

Pick a base

Lettuce is a must in my salad. I want either iceberg or romaine. Iceberg is the most popular type used in salad but has a low nutritional content. Dark green lettuce like romaine is rich in beta carotene, Vitamin K and Vitamin A. Lettuce is also a good source of iron and folate. (

Add extra greenery

I always have cucumber in the fridge. I can just slice it and drizzle with a dressing for my side dish or put it in my sandwich. I believe lettuce and cucumber should go together in a salad.

Add a pop of color

A salad should also be a feast for the eyes. To make it look appetizing, you have to add a pop of color. The tomatoes and grapes broke the monotony of the color green. Plus it provides a burst of sweet and a mild sour flavor.

Mix in healthy extras

For the healthy extras. I mixed in some carrots and green bell peppers. And since this salad is my first meal of the day, I need some carbs. Two spoonfuls of macaroni will somehow fill me up.

Power up with add ons

Did you know that it's healthy to eat two eggs a day? To power up my salad, I added one hard-boiled egg, corn (I love corn!), pomelo and mushrooms.

Drizzle with dressing

I usually drizzle my salad with vinaigrette. I just believe that it's healthier than mayonnaise-based dressings. But since this salad has fruits, I chose the caesar dressing. 

Tada! The salad ala Roselle with everything I want. Well, what goes into my salad actually change depending on my mood. BUT the corn is always present.
