  • 2 tablespoons tinapa flakes smoked fish, optional


  • Chopped and combine all the vegetables and place in a bowl.
  • In a cup, make the sauce. Combine vinegar, sugar, salt or fish sauce and ground pepper. Mix well.
  • Pour sauce over vegetable.
  • It is best serve when cold. Place in the fridge for ½ an hour.
  • Also, if you like, you can add tinapa flakes. Enjoy!


Since I am making a small amount of salad, it is OK to combine vinegar and sugar. Otherwise, make a syrup. In a small pot over medium heat, add vinegar and sugar. Bring to a boil until sugar is dissolved. Turn off heat and let it cool before pouring over vegetables.
