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.

NEW RESTO ALERT: Hà Nội Phố (Ha Noi Pho)

Makati has been a go-to place for my family and I to grab a meal or sometimes just to have a cup of coffee. Though, really, it’s mostly just us visiting our favorite spots. Recently, my mom went out of town so it was just my dad and I who went out for dinner.

Salcedo Market x Legaspi Market Tour

We haven't visited the weekend markets for years so I was giddy with excitement because I was able to visit both Salcedo and Legaspi markets this month, thanks to our Dusit Thani Manila staycation . To differentiate the two, Salcedo market  is held every Saturday at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village Makati while Legaspi market is held every Sunday at the Corinthian Carpark in Legaspi Village Makati. Since we were coming from Dusit Thani Manila, it was quite a long walk but it was early in the morning (around 8AM) and even Ayala and Makati Avenues were still without cars. Wow!
