If you used to follow this food — vegetable blog of mine, you’d surely knew that I love to eat vegetable salads. These salads are not those that what we usually could buy in any food chain or restaurants, but these are home-made salads.

So today, here’s Jack Fruit Meat Salad which is one of the many salads that I am craving to have at this very moment.

But as far as I know, this Jack Fruit Meat Salad is made of jack fruit meat mixed with other vegetables like tomatoes and spices like garlic.

Fish Kinilaw

When I am at home, one of the foods that I really want my mom or any members of the family to prepare is Fish Kinilaw or Fish Ceviche.

Fish Kinilaw

Fish Kinilaw is made and prepared with fresh fish, uncooked but well-marinated in a lemon juice. Before, my mom used to add sliced pork barbeque to add more flavors other than the spices. However, since I stopped eating pork, she only prepare the fish ceviche with fish alone aadded some vegetables like tomatoes and of course, spices like garlic.

This is really what I am craving at this very moment. How I wish I could prepare one. But sad to say, honestly, I don’t know how to prepare Fish Kinilaw or Fish Ceviche.
