Notes and Tips
If you prefer your Nigerian
Salad crunchy, substitute
the lettuce with cabbage.
You can also use the two
as the lettuce adds a
green color to the salad.
The above are the
minimum ingredients for
making a Nigerian salad.
More ingredients such as
boiled macaroni, corned
beef, green bell pepper,
green peas etc can be
added for varied flavour.
The Nigerian Salad is best
consumed within 24 hours
of preparation if no salad
dressing is added to it.
If you are lucky to buy a
baby cucumber, it may not
be necessary to remove
the seeds.
Nigerian Salad can be eaten alone
or as a side dish toJollof Rice,
Coconut Rice, Fried Rice and
other Nigerian rice dishes.
