Ubod Salad with Turnips and Pomelo

These days, I prefer eating more salads than ever . It can be quite a challenge looking for other alternatives for greens before salads become boring. Of course, why didn’t I think of ubod used in fresh lumpia? Chef Myrna Segismundo of Restaurant 9501 shared this tasty recipe that makes use of turnips and Pomelo with Honeyed Patis Dressing. You will love the citrusy dressing because it is comes from Dayap.
