We know that a typical garden salad with raw leafy vegetables tossed with dressing can be a little bit tiring because we search for that strong flavor that’ll tickle our taste buds. This is why we’re giving  your usual green leafy meal an upgrade.

This dish is not only healthy, but also bursting with flavors. All you have to do is pair up your red rice and salted egg ensalada with Sarangani Bay Smoked Bangus!

Since the recipe calls for salted duck eggs (better known locally as itlog na pula), you’ll get more protein in your dish compared to using the usual chicken eggs. These are also rich in amino acids, essential fatty acids, and minerals. You’ll also get that added boost with red rice that has 10 times more antioxidants than brown rice. This is also very rich in essential nutrients, iron, vitamin, phosphorus and fiber, which are good for the skin and beneficial for people with diabetes.
