I am not a salad fan (leafy salads that is) thing that my mom-in-law laughs about.

Even as a young kid when mom and bro makes a simple tomato-cucumber salad...I won't eat. It's because of the vinegar actually...I have a strong rejection of vinegar's taste and smell, that's why I rarely cook dishes that includes vinegar.

But once, being invited at a friend's house, I was tempted to taste the salad that she served since it was just plain lettuce. The dressing was a little vinegar, salt and Kürbis kernöl/Pumpkin seed oil. I liked it. So now, this is the only leafy salad I serve at home. There'd be occasional servings of potato salad and most of the time fruit salad, chicken macaroni salad...but lettuce with kürbis kernöl is the only leafy salad for me.

I like salad, pero I have a particular preference sa lettuce. I can tolerate iceberg lettuce, pero it's at the bottom of my list. My current favorite are baby spinach leaves.

Have you tried the kani-salad? Just mix crabstick, cucumber and iceberg lettuce (optiona), mayonnaise and season with salt and finely ground black/white pepper. Serve chilled. Though di ata siya bagay for winter.. baka mas lalo kayong lamigin!
