Thank goodness, I have recently discovered that our favorite lettuce, romaine is way cheaper at Puregold Cabanatuan. For the smaller 4 romaine heads, I only paid 24.06 pesos. While the bigger 3 heads was priced at 36.35 pesos. Whereas at S____ , prices normally starts at around 30 pesos for a single head romaine.
Sayang. Because in as much as I wanted to buy more, I can’t store them in the fridge longer than three days. Even if I have to wrap each one in paper towels, the leaves will become wilted due to moisture. Hence, it will lose its crispness. The reason why we all loved romaine here.
Besides, those 7 heads will not have to wait that long in the fridge…as we enjoyed them at today’s dinner…a simple salad…
What you’ll need:
4-6 slices of bacon
croutons (I prefer baguette which I usually purchased at N.E Bakeries)
- Prepare the lettuce. Clean each leaves in cool running water. Drain in paper towels. Break into bite sized pieces or as desired. Refrigerate to maintain crispness while other ingredients are being prepared.
- Fry bacon and cut into smaller pieces.
- For the croutons. Make diagonal thin slices on the baguette and brush with fresh garlic, cut into smaller cubes and pour in oil. Mix. You can either saute or bake (I prepare baking them so it’ll be crunchier) the baguette for a few minutes.
- For the dressing, since the kids does not like the classic Ceasar’s (they do not like raw eggs, and the anchovies), I’d always go for this easy plain salad dressing.
There’s the salad at tonight’s dinner. Along with my own version of crazy tonkatsu which I painstakingly prepared…recipe later
