RECIPE: Romaine Salad with Cranberries, Nuts & Pesto Vinaigrette by The Sexy Chef

Here's another interestingly "green" recipe that I learned from The Sexy Chef.




Pesto Vinaigrette:

1 1/2 cup basil, chopped
1/2 tbsp garlic, chopped
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp salt

Puree all ingredients in a blender until emulsified.


Romaine Salad:

6 cups romaine lettuce, torn
1/2 cup carrots, sliced thinly
1/2 cup jicama, sliced thinly
1/2 cup cucumber, sliced thinly
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped

In a large bowl, combine lettuce, carrots, jicama, and cucumber. Top with cranberries and walnuts. Serve with Pesto vinaigrette on the side.

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.
