A little goes a long way when it comes to making salads. For example, a tablespoon of dressing is enough to coat about 60 grams of lettuce. Make sure you don’t overtoss and get the greens all wilted. Make wide folds and flips (around 10) using wide wooden spoons and pair greens with a contrasting dressing. If you’re using bitter greens like arugula, use a sweet type of dressing. For more neutral tasting lettuces like romaine or lolo rosso, go for a tangy vinaigrette. Add sliced veggies, grated cheese, and other toppings only after the dressing has been tossed with the lettuce. Then, cut up fruits like apples, grapes, and mangoes and top these salads just before serving. And if you are making a big batch of salad for a large group and you need more dressing, simply double the recipe for a bigger yield.

My first experience eating bibingka was one treasured memory that I could not forget. The peculiar taste and mouth watering goodness was just exactly what I need to feed my little tummy that time. It was always my aunt's pasalubong whenever she goes out of town and because its her favorite too, she never greeted us without it in her package. And we would always welcome that twin chance of seeing her and tasting her presents.

She has aged now but her longing for bibingka goes on. So everytime I have the chance of visiting her, it is always her favorite pasalubong too and even a single bibingka can already make her smile glow. I don't exactly know what she loves about her first love, bibingka, one thing I know I fell in love with bibingka too.
