Project of the day: Vegetable salad to enjoy with the popular Nigerian Jollof rice

vegetable salad with tomatoes and cucumber

Vegetable salad to enjoy while you relax. Here is a quick vegetable salad recipe. Some people do add boiled eggs to vary the taste (I do sometimes).  A nice tip of shredding your cabbage thinly is, slicing from the inside, which is illustrated below.

Display it nicely and keep your guest salivating before you serve…..haaa….haa…haah.

Fill your salad/display bowl to the brim if you desire (not like me, who made mine half-full).

I ate mine(vegetable salad) with the popular African/Nigerian jollof rice.
